Barnsley & District U3A (BU3A) - Penistone Area Information

This page is to help BU3A members that live in the Penistone area be more aware of new local developments in your area, drop-in meetings etc.

Please note that the Penistone area is not separate from Barnsley & District U3A. All members from either area are always equally welcome to attend groups held in the Barnsley and Penistone areas.

The Penistone Project has been created to enable those in the Penistone area to benefit from all of the facilities of the Barnsley & District U3A, whilst also benefiting from much easier access through also having groups more locally in the Penistone area.

We now have nine groups in the Penistone area. They are:

Crown Green Bowling, 10-45 to 12.45 every Tuesday, at Penistone Bowling Club. Starts again 3/4/18.

Patchwork Projects, third Tuesday of the month, 10am to 12noon, St John's Community Centre.

Walking Group meeting on 1st and 3rd Friday of the month, as announced.

Crafty Chat, every other Friday, 2-4pm. At St. John's community centre.

How our Ancestors Lived, 2nd and 4th Thursday at Penistone Library, 10am to 11.30am.

Paramount Theatre Group Meeting as announced.

Bread Making Courses As advertised. Courses last seven weeks.

Vintage Social, every third Tuesday also at St John's Community Centre, 7-10pm.

Penistone Drop In sessions
These are held at St. John's Community Centre, lower hall, between 10am and 12 noon, on the first Thursday of the month. Come and find out what is happening in your U3A. Information on Travel Group, new groups and social items will be available as will the Buzz Magazine.
