Full list of groups

What is an Interest Group?

This ‘full list’ of groups does not provide FULL information on each group – for that you will need to click on the group name link.  This will then take you to the group page for contact details, meeting locations, and other important details.

Any member of the Minehead & District U3A can attend any of its group meetings, wherever they are held, but please note that some group meetings are constrained by the meeting location, especially when in a private house, so you should always contact the group convenor ahead of a planned meeting attendance.

Some activities are undertaken in conjunction with other local organisations, and may not be listed here – please refer to the page ‘Associated Groups’.

Please note that you can select the number of groups to display in one go – 10, 25, 50, or even 100 (when we have that many!). There is also a Search button above the table on the right.  You can use this, e.g. to select all meetings in Washford, or all groups using Zoom, or all groups meeting on a Tuesday. [x clears the search]

Do also remember that while still in the COVID pandemic restrictions, physical meeting of groups is restrained.  Reference should always be made to the Calendar to see the up to date information on a group’s meetings.
