Proposed new groups



Please remember that only Jávea U3A members can join a Group and that some Groups are already fully subscribed and may operate a waiting list for new members. If the Group in which you are interested is already full, or your interests are not reflected in the list below, perhaps you would consider starting a new or parallel Group. If so, please click Groups Coordinator to send an email to the Groups Coordinator.


The Groups are the heart of the Jávea U3A, without them there would be no Association. Similarly, the Group Leaders are what make the Groups possible and it is the hard work of the Group Leaders which result in so many interesting and enjoyable things for the Members to partake.


As a non-profit making organisation run by volunteers we endeavour to enrich the lives of our Members as best we can.


The Committee let the Group Leaders manage their groups as they see fit. The Committee organise the framework / infrastructure to make that possible, but it is the Group Leaders that do the hard work to keep their Groups functioning.


Although each of the Group Leaders may choose different ways to run their Groups, there are a few unwritten, unspoken rules (the Jávea U3A Ethos) that they all abide by for the benefit of all the Members of the organisation:

  1. The Group Leader must be a paid-up Member of the Jávea U3A.
  2. The people in the Group must also be paid-up Members of the Jávea U3A.
  3. The Group must be open and prepared to accept new Members.
  4. Once the Group reaches its limit on active Members, then it must operate a waiting list, and must select from this waiting list fairly (and not cherry pick).
  5. The Group Leader must respond to emails from Group Members or those enquiring about the Group in a timely manner.
  6. Where there are multiple Groups for the same type of activity, a Member can only be in one of these Groups (thus allowing as many Members as possible to participate in the activity).

These rules are common practice within the Groups and are intended to allow as many genuine Members as possible to participate in these activities.
