LIST OF SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS IN NEIGHBOURING U3As

Members of South Lakes U3A may find that other South Cumbrian U3A groups - Ambleside, Grange Over Sands, and Furness (Ulverston) - meet their interests better than their home organisation. A list of all the special interest groups can be found at

https://u3asites.org.uk/files/g/grange/docs/combinedinterestgroupsjan20181revised.pdf

Membership of a second U3A is available at reduced rates because the national portion of the subscription only needs to be paid once.

ARCHITECTURE, ANTIQUES and SINGING

Interest has been expressed in establishing 3 new interest groups in the following subjects:  Architecture, Antiques and Singing (to relieve the waiting list for the Ruth Gordon Singers). Anybody who would like to be put in contact with others who share these interests is invited to contact the Vice Chair, Bob Wells, cumnorbob@yahoo.com. However, none of these groups will be formed unless volunteers to act as coordinators are forthcoming. Any potential volunteers should feel assured of the active support of the Committee.
