Helping Each Other

The Helping Each Other Group (HEOG) was originally set up to ensure that members with mobility or health difficulties are not excluded from attending activities. As members age, this can become a problem but continuing to interact with others is vital for both physical and mental health. ALL u3a members are welcome to join in.
