Group News

Added on: Mon 7th August 2017
This page is to inform members and potential members of Peterborough U3A of any new groups being formed and also any major news items concerning current groups. (Last updated 7/8/17)
Proposed New Groups
The following are new groups which have been proposed but are looking for enough members to make them a viable proposition.  If you are interested then please follow the links to the group pages for more information and contact details.
  • Story Telling  See here
  • Ukulele (Improvers/Intermediate)  See here

All of these groups require members to get off the ground, so if you are interested then please follow the link to the page for that group and contact whoever shows as Group Leader.  In some cases our Group Co-ordinator is shown, in which case she will add you to an Interest Sheet list.  Once enough people are registered then PU3A will assist the leader in getting the group started

Groups Looking for new members‚Äč

Whilst most groups are open for new members most of the time, occasionally groups need an injection of new blood to keep them fresh.  Some groups in that situation are shown below.  If any of them pique your interest then see the Group Page (click the group name) and if still interested give the Group Leader a call

Roses and Castles, (Canal Art) Line Dancers (Beginners), Sing Something Simple,
Discussion Time Concert Party, Lunch Club, Sundays 2
Singletons only 


Groups Looking for a New Leader

The name Group Leader does not neccesarily mean the person who has the knowledge required to "teach" a group on the technicalities of the group - often it just requires someone with organisation skills to do some of the varied tasks to keep the group running.  This may be things such as organising room booking or collecting fees or kepping members up to date on what is happening.  Obviously you need to be part of the group, but that may be just as a participant.

The following groups are in need of new leaders as the previous post holder has had to step down - such is the nature of our membership.  If you feel you could volunteer you are given great support by our Group Co-ordinator, so give her a call (Hilary Keegan 01733 265769)

 None at present


We do have a number of people queuing up to form new groups in both Spanish and Painting.  If there are any artists or linguists out there who would be prepared to start up a group in either discipline then please contact Hilary Keegan 01733 265769.

We try to avoid long term waiting lists, but without leaders we sometimes have no option until a new leader comes along.
