The U3A has an informal style of learning with meetings organised by each group. The content and method of delivery of information agreed by consensus of the members. Most interest groups meet in each other’s homes, and larger groups often rent premises suitable for their needs.
Each group has one or more group leaders who are the liaison between the group and the Committee, and who are available to advise new members on the group details. Often there is a Group Co-ordinator who makes sure that, if at all possible, group meeting times do not overlap thereby enabling members to join more groups. Many groups meet once per month, some bi-weekly, and some weekly.
The meeting frequency is decided by the individual groups to suit their needs.
Currently Dawlish U3A has many Interest groups, a few of those having large membership. There are a number of smaller groups that have space for new members. Join up by contacting the Membership Secretary via the Contact Us page or attending a monthly meeting at the Methodist Church, Brunswick Place, Dawlish.
