Four Border Abbeys

Welcome to the Four Border Abbeys U3A

We are a group of retired people and others not in full-time employment, who meet together to share learning, creative and leisure activities. We cover the areas of Dryburgh, Jedburgh, Kelso, Melrose and surrounding areas and have our main monthly meeting in Kelso.

We were established in 2003 and at present have over 300 members and more than 30 interest groups.

The group meets on the 2nd Monday of each month (except July and August) in Kelso Rugby Club, Poynder Park, Kelso for the main meeting. Interest groups meet at various times and locations and are run by members on a voluntary basis. Guests are welcome so why not come and join us at one of our monthly meetings.

A brief synopsis of our U3A can be downloaded on the right of the page.

The meetings are free of charge, we hold a monthly raffle and free refreshments.

There is an annual subscription due each September, which is £12 for the year 2017-2018 with a reduced fee for half a year for new members but not renewals.

The group is run by a Committee elected annually from its members.

If you would like to join us then please download the form on the right or contact our Membership Secretary via the Contact page which also contains a phone number to contact him.
