Here you will find details of our general meetings. In normal times they are held on the second Monday of each month at 14:15 in the Marchesi Centre, Windermere. The programme for each meeting is a short business meeting followed by a talk by an invited speaker and finally time for tea, biscuits and a chat with friends.

Other activities such as outings organised by our groups, study days and similar (to which all members are invited) are also listed. Activities of possible interest to our members in neighbouring U3As, the North-west Region and the National U3A appear here.

In the Covid-19 era General Meetings are being held via Zoom, beginning at 14:00.
Zoom connection details will be sent out in a Beacon email in the week before each meeting.
