Welcome to our Membership page. Below you will find information on our membership fee and what your membership will give you in return.
The Croydon u3a Membership year runs from the 1 August to the 31 July of the following year. The Membership fee depends on how you receive u3a information. If you receive by email the individual membership is £20. If by post, then an additional £10 needs to be added making a fee of £30.
There is also the opportunity for two people to apply for joint membership (usually couples living at the same address) at reduced rates of £36 for email and £48 for postal.
The Membership Application Forms can be found on the Forms & Documents page. There are two versions – one for an individual, and the other for joint. Notes on how to complete the application form are included in the forms.
Your Membership fee includes the Croydon u3a Membership card, Bi-monthly Croydon u3a Bulletin, Information on Interest Groups, Croydon u3a Magazines, Third Age Trust Magazines, free entry to monthly General Meetings (at present being run via Zoom due to the Covid restrictions), and a variety of talks being run on Zoom at present.
Some of the further benefits include coach outings, short breaks, summer schools, access to u3a lectures by national cultural organisations (e.g.National Gallery). Due to Government restrictions many of these have had to be halted for the time being but will be up and running as soon as we are allowed.
If you join in July 2021 you will receive a 13 month membership taking you to July 2022.
With a membership of over 600 Croydon u3a hopes you will join us and enjoy many of the activities we have currently for our members, despite lockdowns etc.
