Activity Groups

Winchester U3A has a wide range of activity Groups. A comprehensive list of groups and related information can be found on the Groups page. Each group has a group leader who should be contacted in the first instance if you would like to join a group. The group leaders co-ordinate the activities of their group but all group members are encouraged to share in a joint process of learning.

The broad categories into which the groups fall are described below. Occasionally there are groups which meet for a limited period of time, perhaps for six months, on a more specific topic of interest. These groups are advertised on the website and in our Newsletter.

Many groups meet in members’ homes and so this limits the possible size of the group. If a group is full, the group leader will keep a waiting list. If you cannot find a group for your particular interest, you may like to start a new group. Guidelines are available for anyone wishing to start a new group.

The Groups Secretary can be contacted through the link Group Secretary if you have any further queries or any difficulties in joining groups and the Group Secretary will do their best to help you.

Because the size of many groups is limited by the size of the meeting place, some groups may not have vacancies. In this case, the group leader runs a waiting list. A comprehensive list of Groups and Group Leaders can be found on the Groups page. If you cannot find the particular activity that interests you, we will try to help you form a new group. Many new groups have been formed in this way, and details of new groups can be found on the Home page in the Members' Area.

In addition to the Group activities there is a Monthly Meeting at which typically an external speaker gives a talk on the second Tuesday of the month, held at Littleton Memorial Hall.

The Categories into which the groups are defined are described below and Groups within each Category can be seen on the Groups page.
