Monthly meetings
We hold meetings for all members nearly every month. They are usually, (but not always!), on the third Thursday afternoon of the month, and take place at 2pm at Holy Trinity Church Hall, Fullarton Street, Ayr. This site is convenient for Ayr Bus Station and several of the town centre car parks.

Meetings provide an opportunity for all our U3A members to get together - to play a part in the democratic organisation of the branch, to exchange experiences from the learning groups, to discuss suggestions for new groups, and of course to socialise.

Most meetings will include a guest speaker.
