The monthly meeting takes place on the morning of the first Thursday of each month at the United Reformed Church in Mere Street, Diss, IP22 4AD. Forty-five minutes are allocated to refreshment, socialising and catching up on the interest groups and notices. This is followed by a talk from an interesting guest speaker. Doors open at 9.45am and the meeting commences at 10.30am.

For details of recent meetings, see the Meeting Reports links opposite and visit the Archive page for reports from previous years.


We are always interested to find new speakers for our Monthly Meetings. If you have a presentation that you think would be suitable, please email our Programme Secretary via the CONTACT page.



Once again, we are fortunate to be able to join Wymondham U3A in their programme of coach trips this year. Bookings should be made with them direct, and all details can be found on the adjacent booking form.
