Burnham on Crouch

Groups

One of the main benefits of joining the u3a is the opportunity to participate in our special Interest Groups. We have a wide variety of interest groups running very successfully – you can use the list on this page to find out more about each one.

You must be a u3a member in order to take part in our interest group activities. This ensures that your regular participation in our activities is covered by the u3a’s insurance. However, we usually welcome prospective new members to take part in a trial visit before they have joined the u3a.

If you would like to join an Interest Group please contact the relevant Group Leader whose details you will find on each group’s page.
