Events

At present all future meetings are ONLINE ONLY until "social distancing" is no longer needed.

Need a break from Zoom? Why not sit back, relax and listen to u3a radio? The April 2021 edition featured an interview with one of our members, Maggie Smith. (Scroll to the bottom of the page for Episode 7).

In addition to the Interest Groups we organise a monthly meeting as an opportunity for members to meet each other, swap experiences and new ideas for groups, ask questions and listen to a visiting speaker.

The links to the online meetings are sent out to members approximately 24 hours before the event. Note: Non-members are welcome to attend these meetings and should contact the secretary (click on the blue bird logo) to obtain the link.
