Minority Interest Groups

If a Keyworth & District U3A interest group is well below optimum numbers, or struggling to remain viable, members of neighbouring U3As are permitted to join the group without having to join Keyworth & District U3A. 
 
Such groups are referred to as minority interest groups.  If group leaders wish to involve members of neighbouring U3As in their group they should ask the Groups Co-ordinator for existing groups to consider their group a minority interest group.
 
At present (September 2017) Keyworth & District U3A  have 3 minority groups to which neighbouring U3A members are invited to attend: Philosophy and the World War 1 History group. These are marked with an 'M' in the Interest Group Summary below.

The Keyworth & District U3A arrangements for minority interest groups are set out in our Support for Minority Interest Groups document.

Groups with M after their name are Minority Interest Groups (see above).
