Derwent Valley


Welcome to the Derwent Valley U3A.

We are a friendly organisation offering a broad range of interests for the retired and semi-retired. Anyone who is no longer in full-time employment is eligible to join.

Our activities are organised by our members, who donate their skills and expertise voluntarily. The membership is currently around 175 and continues to grow. The annual membership fee is £20.00 and for this you can join as many groups as you wish.

We meet once a month at St Mary's Centre, Church Chare, Whickham . There is no charge for entry to the monthly meetings. We have a guest speaker at each meeting with the exception of August and December when we have a coffee meeting and January when we have a lunch at a local hotel

If you wish to join or find out more about us then why not come along to one of our meetings or get in touch with our Membership Secretary (see the contact page).
