Our activities include:
Special Interest Groups are led by volunteers and cater for a variety of educational, cultural and recreational interests. The Groups all have their own identity and operate in different ways, some meeting in members’ homes, others in hired rooms.
The Monthly Meetings give people the opportunity to get to know each other and discuss which special interest groups are running or planned.
There is an annual membership fee, currently £13, which is fixed at the Annual General Meeting. Members also receive the national magazine which is published quarterly.
If you are interested in sharing knowledge and experiences, developing your own capabilities by learning with others then the U3A is for you.
At present due to Covid-19 we have had to change our usual activities. We are holding monthly meetings by Zoom and special interest groups are trying to continue in various ways – see the Covid-19, News, Events and Groups pages for the latest information.
