New Groups

From Alyson Smith, Groups Co-ordinator

If all goes well, the government says that there is the potential for us all to meet up together in July.

As some of you know, I have been asking people for their ideas for new group subjects as we come out of lockdown, renew our friendships and groups start to meet up again.

Why not add to your social activities by joining or starting a new group – enlarging your circle of friends, enjoying each other’s company and perhaps learning something new too. After all, that is what the u3a is all about.

Lots of you have already replied and I have quite a list for you to peruse, choose and maybe add to.
So, in order of popularity:

  • Travel – experiences and tips
  • History of Art
  • Art (in general)
  • Music Appreciation
  • Beginners IT
  • Making Music
  • Cooking with Yeast
  • Environmental/Climate Change
  • Archaeology
  • Books/Reading
  • Anthropology
  • Psychology
  • Philosophy
  • Library Book Group (Plymouth Libraries will supply sets of 10 books, monthly)
  • Amateur Radio (see info: www.u3a.org.uk/learning/subjects/868-amateur-radio)
  • Italian for Beginners
  • French for Beginners
  • Watercolours 2

If you would like to join any of these new groups, please email me at and then I can set up a meeting to discuss what you would like to do next.
