Welcome to our U3A
About the U3A
Dronfield and District U3A, registered charity number 1189224, was formed in October 2013. We are part of the Derbyshire and East Midlands U3A Network. Like all other U3As we are unique, but operate within the national U3A guidelines and philosophy. Our membership is drawn predominantly but not exclusively from the areas of Dronfield, Dronfield Woodhouse, Coal Aston, Holmesfield and Unstone. Members from other U3As are welcome to join.
Current members will be able to renew their memberships from 1 August. Full information is on the Membership Renewals page.
If you have any questions about renewal or joining or re-joining please email our Membership Secretary or telephone 01246 900201.
New and Re-Joining Members
The U3A welcomes new and returning members. Please see the Join page for more information. Details of our current fees are on the Membership Subscriptions page. If you have any questions about joining or re-joining please email our Membership Secretary or telephone 01246 900201.
We have approximately 50 Interest Groups excluding Trips & Visits and 'Reserves'. These are listed alphabetically in our Groups List. Once you have opened the list, click anywhere on a group's name to expand its details and see the objectives of the group, whether or not it has vacancies (assume it has unless it says otherwise) and when, where and how often it meets. Contact details for Group Coordinators can be found on the Groups page, along with information about how they operate. Some groups publish information about future meetings on the Dronfield and District U3A Calendar.
Monthly General Meetings (these have been suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak)
Normally, all members are invited to attend our Monthly General Meetings. Potential members are welcome to attend up to two of these meetings. They are usually held at the Civic Hall, Dronfield, S18 1PD on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, from 10.00-12.00. The meetings provide an opportunity to discuss business, to meet other members, share information about group activities and hear talks by visiting speakers. Dates and details, including speakers and venues, are on the Members page.
We publish a monthly newsletter, which is emailed to all members. Copies of recent issues can be found on the News page. We hope they will give a flavour of our U3A, reflecting the wide range of interests and the friendly and welcoming nature of our members.
All of our Policies and Guidelines are available on the Policies page.
