Glossop U3A is structured into Groups and Trips/Visits.

A Group is defined as one that:

  • runs an educational, recreational or social programme, in accordance with the constitutional objectives,
  • maintains a list of members,
  • expects regular attendance at meetings by those members, and
  • submits annual accounts and reports.

.......Trips/Visits are

  • open to all members (provided that they belong to one or more groups),
  • discrete, (one-off events that do not have fixed membership), and
  • non-profit events which submit a nil-balance return as soon as concluded.
