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.
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.
Our interest groups 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.
Our Monthly Meetings are open to all members. To comply with COVID-19 guidelines, they are now being held online. All members are invited to attend. The meetings provide an opportunity to discuss business, to virtually meet other members, share information about group activities and hear talks by visiting speakers. Dates and details of planned meetings 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.
