South Woodham Ferrers
Registered Charity No 1181261
Our U3A has a large number of activity groups (see below) and new
members are always welcome to join any one of them. However, some groups are
limited in terms of membership numbers and may have a waiting list. For more
information on any of the groups please contact the Groups Coordinator at
Ideas for new activity groups are always welcome and the Groups Coordinator will
be happy to discuss their feasibility and help with their set-up. Having an idea
for a new group does not mean you have to be the Group Leader, so don't let this
put you off coming forward with suggestions.
Each of the two U3A organisations in South Woodham Ferrers has their own
interest groups. However, where it is difficult to establish a group because of
low numbers of interested participants, it has been agreed between the two
organisations to pool resources. Therefore members from one of the two U3As can
join interest groups of the other organisation, subject to agreement by the
coordinator and there being vacancies available.
