Men Needed!
The Singing for Pleasure, Ballroom and Latin, and Modern Jive groups would love to have more men join them. (Women are still welcome to join!)

Signing Up for Groups/Waiting Lists/Leaving Groups
Please contact Paula, groups co-ordinator, if you are interested in joining any of our existing groups. Even better, come along to our monthly meetings where you will be able to talk to some of our convenors and find out more about their groups. More than half of the existing groups currently have space for new members.
Even for groups that are full it is worth putting your name on waiting lists. When spaces become available they are offered to people on waiting lists first. If you donít register your interest, you could miss out!
If you have signed up for a group that you can no longer attend, please let your group convenor know so that the space can be allocated to someone on the waiting list.

Learn Something New in 2020
Sign Up for courses in:
Spanish for Beginners to run from early 2020
Mahjong for beginners to run from April 2020

Groups Needed
If you would like Woodley U3A to be offering other groups that we do not currently have, then please email Paula or talk to her at the next monthly meeting. Offers to help run these groups would be particularly welcome.
