Chatteris

Welcome to Chatteris U3A

.

The U3A movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its local U3A’s (including the Chatteris U3A), life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward, i.e. the sheer joy of discovery. Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn - there is no distinction between them.

.

The Chatteris U3A was started in 2012 and currently has over 140 members. The management of Chatteris U3A is vested in the Executive Committee 2019-20. The GROUPS page shows our present wide range of Interest Groups from Archery to Walking. All groups are set up and managed by our members themselves with many of the resulting sessions taking place in their own homes. New Interest Groups are evolving all the time with the emphasis always on learning for fun. Chatteris U3A publishes a monthly newsletter, Chatterbox!, that is distributed to all members in either digital or paper format as required. The latest newsletter and some previous editions can be accessed on the NEWSLETTER page.

.

A Monthly Open Meeting is held at the King Edward Centre in Chatteris at 10.00am on the third Thursday of each month during which members are updated on local U3A matters, can have a cup of tea or coffee and then listen to an interesting and informative talk given by an invited speaker. The DIARY page provides information about forthcoming Monthly Open Meetings and also gives details of other future happenings such as social events, outings and theatre trips.

.
