Dance bare-foot or in soft-soled shoes.  Group is open to other U3A’s.

    Cost :   £4 (or £18 for 6 sessions).

  • Cycling


    This group meets twice a month on the 1st Wednesday and 3rd Tuesday. It is open to members of any U3A.  We are covered by the U3A insurance for third party liability.
    We usually meet at about 11am, cycle between 20 and 30 miles at an average speed of 8 to 10 mph and we always stop for a pub lunch. We try to stick to minor country roads and cycle tracks. We are often in the Sevenoaks and surrounding area but from time to time we are more ambitious and drive or take the train further afield. We have also had trips to France! Each member of the group is expected to take their turn planning and leading rides. There are very few rules and we like to keep our cycling relaxed and informal.
    We have a loose link with the “Rusty Riders” group in Knole U3A, if shorter and more relaxing rides are required. Group is open to other U3A’s
