****DON'T BE LONELY*****
If you click on the "Groups" button at the top of the page, you will see a list of all the activities that we currently offer, but this is only work in progress, there are new people and new ideas coming along all the time. If there is something you would like to see included then let us know- there may be other people looking for the same thing, and we can put you in touch. At the very least, we could refer you to one of our neighboring U3As if they offer what you are looking for.
- You are welcome to attend a meeting to learn more.

If there is something that you think you could lead a group for, then let us know even sooner. The "Contact" button links to an easy way of getting in touch with one or all of the committee members. The "Leaders Page" will give you a quick insight into what a leader has to do from the admin point of view.
JOINING BIDDULPH u3a
The annual commencement/enrolment of Biddulph u3a usually takes place either during June/July, at our annual 'Showcase' or at the enrolment afternoon at the beginning of September.( the date of this is announced nearer the time)
If you are unable to make these dates,or if you are joining at a different time of the year,the best thing to do is, firstly, decide what group or groups you want to join.. The next step is to contact the group leader. The contact tel number can be found at the top of each individual group page.
Some groups are small or have plenty of space but be warned that other groups might be full or have limited numbers so you will have to check that the group you wish to join has spaces. Most groups, if full, do have a waiting list.
The group leaders will be able to talk to you about their classes and answer any questions you might have. It is always recommended that you have a taster session of one or two meetings to see if that particular group is suitable for you.
If you do decide to join the very friendly and progressive Biddulph U3A you can obtain a membership form from the appropriate group leader, or download one from the link(top right) on the Welcome page. Annual membership costs £15.00 and, with a few exceptions, each session will cost you £2.00
