The format of meetings is very loose and difficult to quantify. We have a general bring and share lunch every two months to plan activities. These include cinema, theatre, walking, dining, scrabble, card games, dominoes, lectures etc.  Activities take place at week-ends and in the evenings.
The Group is limited to 22 members eligible to attend the bring and share lunches every two months due to lack of space.  We have three co-opted members elegible to join all the other activities.

A group of people joining forces to explore, one evening a month, the restaurants and pubs of Sheffield and surrounding areas. We try and sample as many different types of venue as possible.  We are predominantly ladies.  Each person takes a turn in choosing and organising the venue, informing other members of the arrangements etc.

Our aim is to organise trips outside of the UK of educational/ vocational interest for members of SU3A using all modes of transport.

In the short term we aim to organise 2-3 trips in 2014,however we are keen to increase the number of trips as the group becomes more comfortable with the organisational requirements.
We are very open to ideas from you, the members. If you have any destination ideas for 2015 please get in touch with me, Samina, preferably by email so that our group can investigate in good time

Attention meat eaters!
               We are mostly meat eaters but on these occasions we come together to sample vegetarian cuisine at our local Indian restaurants. We have about thirty venues to choose from.  This is run rather like an open group so you are welcome to try us.  You may participate as often or as little as you wish.  There is a maximum of 16 or 20 places per evening depending on the venue. At each restaurant the management is consulted in advance to see what innovations they can offer us. This is to achieve an inspiring choice of dishes on the night. We then share all the dishes in buffet style.
               Phone the coordinator to find our next available evening.
