Halton

Events

Halton U3A General Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 1.30 pm at Widnes Masonic Hall, Kingsway, Widnes, WA8 7QH. General meetings are for all members and anyone who might be interested in joining Halton U3A as a member. There will usually be a speaker and you will also hear of any news and changes taking place, as well as anything of interest in U3A in general such as courses, outings or workshops.

N.B. There usually isn't a general meeting in August but there will be a virtual general meeting in August 2021.

Membership of Halton U3A is £15 per year. Visitors are welcome at monthly general meetings. They will be asked to pay £2 which will subsequently refunded should they decide to join Halton U3A.

7th March 2020 - In line with the advice from the Government yesterday, Halton u3a Committee has decided that all Halton U3A activities (group meetings, general meetings, drop-ins and events) will be suspended with immediate effect until further notice.
We feel we have no choice but to take this step to avoid face to face contact for the well-being of our members. We hope that members will find ways to keep in contact with each other by telephone or email, particularly with other members of their interest groups. We hope to resume all U3A activities as soon as the Government advises.

September 2020 - Some of our groups are now regularly meeting online via Zoom. These groups include the Science Is For Everyone group, the iPad group and the Reading Group. These meetings are open to current members of Halton U3A and visitors. Visitors should contact the group leaders via email for further information. Contact details for the relevant group leaders can be found on the respective group pages on this website.

June 2021 - The committee of Halton u3a continues to meet regularly to discuss and plan future meetings and events. Hopefully we will be able to gather for the AGM in September and be restarting physical group meetings by then depending on government restrictions and Third Age Trust guidelines. It's very much a case of watch this space!
