All classes are conducted by volunteer tutors, who offer programs drawing upon their own interests and expertise. We are always on the lookout for new class ideas, and always welcome and support new tutors. The Tutors Folder can be found here or on the button above.
U3A SurfCoast does not yet have the luxury of a dedicated ‘home’, and we are dependent upon the generosity of other organisations for venue hire. In Torquay, many classes are run at Spring Creek Community House, and we also have access to the Salvation Army rooms, and facilities at two retirement villages. The Community House at Anglesea is the base for Anglesea sessions.
