Our Monthly Magazine is about the Groups and our Members

We look forward to the month ahead with Dates For Your Diary. Here you will find a snapshot of things you might like to try. We carry on this theme with Try Something New. Every month we turn the spotlight on one group and run a ‘fly on the wall’ feature following one of their meetings. Another regular feature is A day in the life of a Convener, where we look at what it takes to run one of our Groups, and take a light hearted look at how the U3A runs. We also have a regular cookery feature written by Nerys Wilson and gardening tips and ideas from Sandra Gregory and Barbara Hellin from the Gardening Group. A very popular feature is our ‘Lets Meet’ article where we look into some surprising back stories that our members are happy to share with us. There are lots of other articles, both light hearted and challenging.

Since the Magazine was launched in February 2017 it has grown and grown, and is now regularly well over 40 pages!

We can promise you an entertaining read!

Please contribute to the magazine. We’d be delighted to have more groups and conveners for the spotlight feature and we also want to know what your group has been doing. E-mail us at
