Cheadle & Gatley

Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Cheadle and Gatley U3A.

The group was formed in the summer of 2011

and we now have over 250 members with more than 30 Interest Groups operating.

COVID 19 OUTBREAK

During the current lockdown all Monthly Meetings and Interest Group Meetings have been suspended. Some Groups have, however, been meeting 'virtually'.

AGM 2020

As it has been impossible to arrange a normal AGM this year, the Committee has decided to arrange one 'virtually' giving all renewed members the opportunity to vote, as being in the best interests of our U3A. This complies with the Charity Commission's regulations. All the relevant documents have been emailed or posted to our members and they can all be accessed by clicking on AGM 2020 in the sidebar.
