Mainly for Men is based on monthly activities, which seek to offer members new experiences and visit places they would be unlikely to undertake or go to on their own. While the target group is clearly men, a woman who was attracted to the activities could certainly join in.
Individual members with particular skills or experience will lead sessions. The hope is that such sessions would help members develop interests and pursue them more regularly.
The group meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month

Each member is encouraged to take ownership, with support, of a monthly session, proposing an activity for the rest of the group to discuss and agree. Meetings take place monthly at the venue of the particular activity. More expensive events will be spaced out, in recognition of the fact that not all U3A members have deep pockets.
