Ambleside & District


Here you will find details of our general meetings. These 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.

Non-commercial events run by other organisations that may be of interest to U3A members can be found on the News page.

All General Meetings begin at 14:15.

Sat Oct 6th Coffee Morning
10am Marchesi Centre

The coffee morning is used mainly to raise funds for the centre but in
addition we hope to promote our Ambleside and District U3A by providing
information as to the various activities. Therefore it would be useful if any of
the coordinators could attend.
We shall be having the usual cake stall and raffle and shall be asking for
contributions foe those nearer the time. If anyone is willing to help out on
the day with the raffle or the cake stall please contact Hilary Storey
