Discussion Group


The Discussion Group provides a forum for U3A members to engage in discussions with their peers about any subjects of their choosing.  There are now two goups in operation - Group 1 (third Mondays) is currently full, and new members should join Group 2 (fourth Mondays).

Discussion Group 1 meets on the third Monday of each month at 10.00am to 12.00 noon. The venue is 

Emmanuel Cottage
16 Townsend Green
HP17 8JW

Discussion Group 2 meets on the morning of the fourth Monday of each month at 10.00am.  The venue is 

10 Mallard Croft
HP17 8EF

The  groups operate on an "Open Forum" basis with each attendee bringing a topic for discussion.  So we are able to cover a number of subjects in our two hour session.  The meetings are very informal, with everyone able to speak and give their opinion on each subject.

If you are intending to attend for the first time, please notify John Holloway in  advance (see below).




There is a £1.00 attendance charge to cover refreshments and any special occasions in the future.
