East Medway

Welcome to East Medway U3A


It is with regret that the committee have taken the decision to cancel all of 2020 meetings as a response to the threat of coronavirus. We have been informed by the Smallholders club that they will not be opening in 2020 so all of the main meetings are cancelled.

As from the 16th March, all Group activities are cancelled. This will affect all Groups until at least the end of 2020. Members will appreciate that the demographic profile of our organisation indicates that our members are among the population most likely to be hit by the virus and we do not wish to provide opportunities for the virus to propagate amongst our members.

Some of our groups are continuing to have meetings via the online conferencing facilities offered by Zoom.
A small number of our groups are operating with whatsapp.

East Medway U3A provides a friendly welcome to all. Membership (£18 per annum) is open to anyone who is no longer in full-time work and who wishes to take part in its educational and social activities.

U3A is a forum of like minded people who wish to learn new skills, and/or pass on existing skills to others in a friendly, social and relaxed environment.

Monthly meetings usually have a guest speaker followed by a social gathering after the speaker.

The East Medway U3A started in June 2013 & we currently have in excess of 300 members and over 40 interest groups ranging in subjects from Art to Walking. Our regular monthly all-member meetings are held on the second WEDNESDAY of each month, at The Smallholders Club, 2 Springvale, Wigmore, Gillingham, Kent ME8 0JG

If you would like to join East Medway U3A, you can either send your application form (see link to this on the right) to our membership secretary (address on the form) with a cheque or alternatively you may prefer to attend the next monthly meeting as a guest for a fee of £2 and decide then.
