The word University in our title does not mean that we expect members to be of an academic persuasion.  Our members come from all walks of life and have a wide and varied experience of previous employment.  We feel confident that you would feel at home here.

We have twenty-one interest groups, offering a wide range of activities, and would welcome more.  Brief details of the activities of all our groups, as well as the group leaders' contact details, can be accessed by clicking the Interest Groups link above.  You are welcome to visit any of the groups without committing yourself to membership.  Please contact the group leader or Membership Secretary to advise of your wish to visit, when more details will be given.

Your particular interests may not be covered by our existing groups but do not despair.   You would probably find that your interest is shared by other members who can help to create a new interest group.

Email and Text Scams
Email and text scams are becoming more common.  Often I receive more than one in a day.  They almost always ask you to click a link to correct an error or to carry out some saving action.  They usually begin by claiming that a payment has been stopped, that your account has been suspended or with a threat of legal action.  Often, the email claims to come from an organisation with which you have never had any connection.
If you are in any doubt, contact the organisation by your usual route or by telephone.  The best course of action is to either delete the Email or message or mark it as junk with the option to block the sender, if that is available.  In the case of texts, forward them to 7726.  In the case of emails, you can forward them to
