WHAT WILL MY SUBSCRIPTION COVER?
Your subscription will entitle you to attend monthly meetings (see programme under EVENTS/ACTIVITIES) and interest groups (see GROUPS PAGES), as well as a contribution to the Third Age Trust (the U3A national headquarters organisation). You will receive our own regular Newsletter, via email if you have given an email address. The national U3A magazine, "Third Age Matters" is available at £3:00 per household.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY MY SUBSCRIPTION?
As most interest groups meet in members' homes, there is no fee for attendance but group members are asked to contribute to the cost of refreshments and any consumables such as photocopying. Where interest groups use hired accommodation, such as for sports activities, the cost is shared amongst the group members. You will also need to pay for your own travel, meals out, entrance fees and other incidental expenses for trips and visits. We encourage members to share transport on a shared cost basis.
