We have a meeting of general interest on the last Thursday of each month, except August and December. There is a visiting speaker on a range of topics. The meeting is aimed at bringing members together, publicising the activities of the groups, and giving members a sense of fellowship in the u3a. You can see brief details of meetings which are coming up on Dates for your Diary below. You are welcome to attend one or two of these meetings as a visitor to meet members and group organisers, and to get a feel for what the U3A has to offer. For further details, visit our News page.

See the link on the right for details of National Events which may be of interest.
