Groups Contact Details & Calendar

In January 2018 Cheltenham U3A had 114 Groups, covering languages, physical activity, art, book clubs, music, bridge, crossword, photography, wine tasting… And as we encourage new Groups to run as soon as possible, they often fill within a few weeks, and waiting lists can be annoyingly long.

To try and circumvent this, we are always looking for more Groups or multiplying existing Groups. The most important factor is finding Group Leaders.

How you can help

If there is anything you fancy doing that is not available to you when you contact the Groups through the web site, talk to the Groups Coordinator and consider how easy it might be to run a Group yourself. The ‘what to do’ pages of the Group Leaders Handbook can be found in a link on the right of this page.

Cheltenham U3A facilitates new Groups through a Groups Coordinator (see contacts) and supports them in several ways:

  • We help prospective leaders to find a venue for their activity
  • We support the first six meetings financially should there be insufficient members joining in that time
  • We will buy capital equipment for the U3A that are needed for new (and existing) Group activity

If there is anything you fancy doing that is not available to you when you contact the Groups through the web site, talk to the Groups Coordinator and consider how easy it might be to run a Group yourself. Here our Groups are listed, and below them a through-month calendar showing when each is held by morning/afternoon and day of week. Click on a Group for more detail and click on the Group Leader to email them.

If you are thinking of starting a Group have a look at “Group Leaders Handbook” and contact Groups Coordinator – or make contact if you have a more general enquiry than for a specific Group or Groups.
