Groups Organized by Day

Not all groups meet on a weekly basis, so it’s quite possible that you can attend groups that are held at the same time on different weeks. Use the group leaders’ contact details in the HGS U3A Members’ Handbook to find out which dates a group meets on.

W after the group’s name indicates that the group is currently full and operating a Waiting List.
