North East Cheshire Network
Bramhall, Cheadle & Gatley, Cheadle Hulme, Poynton, Wilmslow, Macclesfield and Stockport u3as have formed an association known as the NORTH EAST CHESHIRE (NEC) NETWORK.

Importantly, the NEC NETWORK recognises OPEN GROUPS. These are Interest Groups organised, as usual, within a particular u3a but open to all members of all the u3as in the NEC NETWORK.  It is hoped that the membership of an Interest Group will increase once it has become an OPEN GROUP.  So far, a number of OPEN GROUPS have been formed.

Links to the websites of the u3as in the NEC NETWORK can be found on the Contact Us page and details of the OPEN GROUPS can be found on the Interest Groups page.
