Welcome to our Website
The Worksop and District U3A was formed in the latter part of 2009 and membership is growing. We currently have over 200 members.
The monthly General Meeting is held at St Anne's Church Hall, Harrington Street off Newcastle Avenue, Worksop S80 1NQ at 2 pm on the third Thursday of each month. (Please see Events for more details).
Membership of the Worksop and District U3A can be obtained either at our monthly general meetings or by contacting our membership secretary, by emailing through the Contacts page. An application form will then be sent to you upon receipt of a SAE. Please send your completed application form and cheque , made payable to Worksop and District U3A. If you belong to another U3A Group, the cost will be reduced by £3.50p. From April 2013 our financial year runs from April- March.
Copies of the quarterly Third Age Trust Magazine (U3A News) are available for the cost of postage only. A copy of our monthly newsletter listing all news and future activities is forwarded by e-mail. A copy will be available at the monthly General Meeting for a fee to cover printing costs.
Currently we have 30 groups with more being added on a regular basis,offering a diverse range of activities - Art Appreciation, Theatre, Swing Music, Gardening, Steel Band, Photography, Tai Chi etc. Each Group is self organised and new members are welcome to join an existing group. If you have a particular interest and there is no group currently running, please do not hesitate in getting a group started! Committee members will be available to give you as much guidance and help that is necessary to get any new group up and running.
