Cross Memberhip Opportunities in Interest Groups

Many U3A groups has specialist interest groups that have great value but are low on numbers. Our immediate past president Sue Cronshaw, was keen on groups doing more to share their resources. Inviting the members of another U3A to join some of your interest groups offers an opportunity to build stronger groups and to share the expertise that some U3A's have in their membership.

Please use this form to make requests for inclusion on this page.
