The main activities of U3A take place in the Interest Group sessions. The primary purpose of Groups is to share knowledge and learn together in a social setting that is relaxed and enjoyable.
We have a Monthly Meeting with a speaker on general topics, news on our Interest Group activities and a chance for members to get together socially. Anyone who wants to find out more is welcome to attend.
