The Group meetings give members the opportunity to discuss and explore current topical issues. The sessions involve some preparation and scope for individual research and we have a lively but good humoured discussion with everyone having a chance to contribute. No previous knowledge is required just an ability to be prepared to listen to the discussion and contribute. You are definitely advised to leave any personal prejudices at the door!

Topics covered to date include The global recession; Scottish independence; The Welfare State ; The UK and the EU; the UK transport system; the role of religion; and the 'broken society'- so a very broad range of topics. Discussions in the past couple of years have focussed particularly on Brexit. And of course on issues around the Covid19 pandemic. But we try and make time to discuss other key issues such as climate change etc.

Our u3a activities are risk assessed. If you take part in any group activity you must read the risk assessment.
