Bridlington

Welcome

Bridlington U3A started in September 2007 and it has enjoyed a period of rapid growth. On our first birthday in September 2008, *there were 300 members and about 40 different interest groups, co-ordinated and led by a dedicated band of volunteers. We welcome all those who are no longer in full-time employment as well as those who are in part-time employment. We meet each month to hear an invited speaker and to conduct business in the beautiful Bridlington Spa, after growing out of our original homes, first in the North Library and subsequently at Emmanuel Church. Groups are held in members’ homes as well as in more specialist venues.Membership in January 2017 stands at over 850 with more than 90 different interest groups. If you wish to become a Bridlington U3A Member please contact The Membership Secretary.

Raffle Team The raffle team lead by Jean Goad have done really well since we’ve revamped the prizes making on average between £80 and £100 at each meeting. These proceeds go towards paying for the hire of the Spa Royal Hall.
Monica & Cora Cora and Monica are to be found at the Book Stall. They have access to a huge range of books and religiously bring them in by car every meeting. You can buy as many as you like for a donation!
