Meetings and Social Activities

Monthly Meetings

The Monthly Meeting is held on the third Thursday of the month (except the months of August, September & December). We ask guest speakers to talk for about 45-50 minutes plus a Q&A session, after which tea and coffee are provided. Entry to the meeting is free and we particularly welcome new members and those who have not been to these talks before. We also encourage members to invite friends who may be thinking of joining the U3A. This is a good opportunity to meet members of the Committee, other members and for Group Leaders to pass on notices and other important information.
