Callander & West Perthshire

Groups

All of the groups are run by members who are kind enough to give their time for free and there are no outside tutors. Some of the groups are located in members' homes whilst some are held in public meeting places, usually depending on numbers within each group or the type of activities needing greater space.

Most of the groups are held in Callander but we aim to diversify into the surrounding villages where there is a demand for this. Click on the Group Name for further details or see the full timetables under LINKS on this page.

Want to join? Email the Membership Secretary (john_champness@hotmail.com) with your contact details (address, email & telephone), or phone 01877 330955, then post your fee to him (cheques payable to Callander & W. Perthshire U3A):

John Champness, 18 Robertson Way, Callander FK17 8JF

The annual fee, due each August, is £10, reduced to £5 for anyone a full member of another U3A. For anyone joining for the second half of the year in January, the fee is just £5.
