New Members Group

We meet on the 3rd Monday each month at Priory Campus at 6:30pm.

This group is purely for recently joined members of bu3a and was set up in July 2017.
We now also include people who maybe interested in joining and would like more information

The aims of the group are:

  • To give all new members the opportunity to be introduced and get to know each other.
  • To help understand how our u3a works.
  • To be a stepping stone between joining to becoming settled in groups of your choice.

You will be invited to attend 3 sessions.

Topics covered will be:

  • A brief history of the U3A
  • How to join groups.
  • BU3A monthly meetings.
  • The Buzz quarterly magazine.
  • Facebook (private closed group).
  • Blue boxes and the importance of signing-in register.

Eveline Mirfin

And of course, any other subject you need information on.

The group will be kept small, around 12 members each session to allow you to feel comfortable and relaxed.

Coordinator: Eveline Mirfin (click picture to enlarge)
