This month we profile Heswall U3A
On the 2nd Monday of each month we have a U3A Members Meeting. This is a chance to find out what is happening, to join an interest group, suggest a new interest group, and/or book a place on a range of learning and social activities/events organised by members. This meeting takes place on a drop in basis anytime between 10–12pm. Each month there will be a theme based on our interest groups or potential new groups which we hope will inspire members to get more from our U3A. It is also a great opportunity to meet other members.
This is also when potential new members can find out more about the U3A philosophy and have the opportunity to join Heswall U3A. New members should come between 10.15 and 11.45.
On the 4th Monday of each month (except when this falls on a Bank Holiday) we have a Speaker Meeting (this is a members only meeting). The speaker will normally start at 10.30 but doors open at 10.00 when refreshments will be available.
Study and Interest Groups
The heart of Heswall U3A is in its interest groups and other activities. Below you will find over 50 interest groups and a range of other learning and social activities. What they have in common is a group of people wanting to learn about a subject and a group co-ordinator willing to facilitate that learning. They are also fun and sociable. Many of the group write-ups say: “we are a friendly group”. Most people find Heswall U3A a friendly organisation. There are no certificates, we learn because we want to, not because we have to, and we enjoy what we do.
Have a look at what is currently available and think what you can offer to us. All our groups and activities are a reflection of members’ interests and willingness to participate. Anything is possible! There are so many groups we just summarise them below with some pictures of the members in action.
