For those new to the Downham area, welcome to our U3A website. If you are an existing member, we aim to keep you informed about all our activities.
The University of the Third Age is a national movement for retired and semi-retired people who are keen to carry on learning and sharing knowledge, as well as making new friends.
Our U3A is extremely popular, with membership of around 250. At the moment we have over 35 learning/activity groups, all led voluntarily by members. Where possible these meet in members' homes; group members are asked to contribute 50p for refreshments.. For those groups requiring a larger space (e.g. Tai chi or Singing for Pleasure) the group members share the cost of hiring a suitable room. Leaders of outdoor activity groups keep members informed about meeting venues and outings. All learning/activity groups take place during the day.
Our Annual Subscription, payable at the April meeting each year, is £15.00. New members joining in January will pay £7.50 until the April meeting. A reciprocal agreement exists with King's Lynn, Hunstanton, Wisbech and North Norfolk U3As, which allows our members to attend general meetings and up to two interest groups in these U3As without having to pay any fees. Reciprocal Agreement
Monthly meetings are held at the Town Hall on the second Monday of each month, (except August), with guest speakers and refreshments. Whilst the meetings are free to members, we ask visitors to pay £2.00 which will be redeemed if they enrol.
We are always happy to welcome new members!
