The Groups can be searched in several ways:
- all groups alphabetically
- all groups by category
- all groups by day/time
- all groups by postcode
- Groups that have recently told us they have space for more members are listed here.
These options are also under GROUPS in the Main Menu above.
Groups are the core activity of any U3A, and in North London we have a great variety to offer our members. Many groups meet in one another’s homes, providing a friendly background; others meet in venues around the region and here, too, you will be sure of a warm welcome. There is no formal structure, no classroom atmosphere, but learning for the pleasure of learning is the name of this game. For the most part, our groups are self-led while others, for example language groups, will have an experienced teacher; all of them are informal, inspired and enthused by their members. Our website will regularly update information on groups, so keep checking these pages and you won’t miss anything! You can go along to any group once, as a ‘taster’ before deciding whether to join it; if there is a waiting list, please ask the group leader to put your name on it and pass it to me. The Groups Organiser Team will always be delighted to hear from you, and we are happy to offer help and advice, so browse through the Index, read about the groups that interest you, and enjoy the year ahead. We certainly will, and we look forward to meeting members new and old in the coming months.
We are always delighted to hear from anyone who is keen to lead a group – you don’t need special expertise in most inatances, and we are always on hand with support and advice to get you on your way. Being a group leader is enjoyable: you make firm friends, and get the satisfaction of greater involvement with our U3A.
