New Members Meetings
As Covid restrictions limited our ability to meet with one another, many new members who joined during this period have not had the opportunity to find out more about Derby u3a and how to get involved in our activities. In order to now give them that opportunity, we are inviting anyone who joined after December 2019 to come to one of three meetings we are setting up in June and July. See the Events Page for details.

Publicity Stalls at Derby Events this year
Derby u3a will have stalls at Oakfest (Oakwood) on July 3rd and the Chaddesden Big One (Chaddesden Park) on 31st July. Come along and say hello!
