Groups Organized by Day

Not all groups meet every week, 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 when the group meets.

The Vacancies column indicates how many places are currently available in the group if it has an upper limit. W indicates that the group is currently full and operating a Waiting List.

Groups without an entry in the Vacancies column generally have spaces available.
