Welcome to Formby u3a groups page.

Groups are the backbone of Formby u3a and in the eyes of our members the most important part of this great organisation. We want you to be able to join and enjoy the groups that interest you. We therefore work with Group Leaders to try to find vacancies in the groups of your choice and establish new groups where members have expressed a need. If you are having difficulties joining any of the groups below, and Group Leaders and Co-ordinators cannot help you – please contact me, Pam Ashton, Groups’ Secretary. Email:
