Berwick Upon Tweed

U3A News

The Notice Board is on the Welcome page.

STOP-PRESS, 17 Mar 20, on behalf of the Committee:

Following the latest government guidelines, the following will be cancelled until further notice

Open meetings
Group leader's meeting
AGM - alternative arrangements are covered in our Constitution
Group meetings

We do this reluctantly, knowing that the social contact is an important element of our U3A. There is no alternative given the current situation.


On this page, you will find general information about Berwick U3A activities and outings, plus regional and national U3A items.

Russian Group?
Are there any native Russian speakers or fluent speakers of Russian out there who would be willing to teach or lead a conversational Russian group? There are a few members who have expressed an interest in the Russian language and culture, and I'm sure there must be some more interested parties out there. Some of us have tackled Russian in the distant and not too distant past to varying levels and would love to take it up again. If anybody is interested in taking on a Russian conversational group we would be very grateful. Please contact Hilary O’Shea ( if you are interested in joining or leading the group. Большое спасибо!

U3A Networking
We have a networking arrangement with Alnwick, Coquetdale and Wooler U3As. Without having to pay a membership fee, we can join groups or attend events organised by those U3As, as long as there are places available; and of course the same applies to them if they wish to join any of our activities. Naturally, we do have to pay towards any room hire if appropriate. Links to their websites are on the right of this page.

U3A leaflet
There is a new Berwick U3A leaflet, which will be available at Open Meetings, for anyone who wishes to show it to their friends or relatives.
