Seaham Harbour U3A is broken up into a number of different groups, we call these our “Interest Groups“; each group manages itself and is set up to do what our members want.

Interest GroupsInterest Groups

Our Members may join as many interest groups as they wish. These interest groups are formed and run by members themselves, for the members.

How to Join an Interest Group

To join a group just see the group leader, however, non-members can speak to the appropriate leader about joining although to participate they should be a full member of Seaham Harbour U3A.

Got something to offer our Interest Groups?

If you’re looking for something different that we don’t do or you have a particular skill you’d like to share; anyone can request a new interest group to form provided there are at least 2 people interested (and it is legal).

Interest Group Costs

Groups are self funding so if the activity costs money, there may be a small charge, even if it’s just to cover refreshments.

These are our interest groups, listed below. To find out more about each group click on it’s name to be taken to the news section for that group.

Each group has a group leader, and deputy leader, to see who’s who just click here
