In 2018 a group of like-minded seniors started running Discussion Group, a monthly group who research, meet and talk about a nominated subject and share a cuppa and some kai.
Their group was based around the idea and principle of U3A which stands for University of the Third Age.
The goal being to:
Encourage further learning by listening, understanding, contributing, researching and participating in discussion and relevant excursions about new topics.
Tap the great reservoir of knowledge, skills and experience of retired men and women.
Provide a venue for the meeting together of like minded people to learn, contribute and to make new friends in their local community.

The Discussion Group meets the first Wednesday of each month at WestREAP, 72 Tudor Street, Hokitika from 1:00pm - 3:00pm
