Welcome to East Medway U3A
Welcome to the website of East Medway U3A.
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.
In normal times we run a main monthly meeting with a speaker, and 40 interest groups. Together, these provide members with an opportunity to learn or improve a wide range of skills, develop interests, as well as meet new people and socialise together.
Our strap line is Learn, Laugh, Live and we aim to do just that!
However the Coronavirus pandemic has given us new challenges, as clearly we are not able to meet together as we once did.
Regretfully therefore the committee has taken the decision to cancel all main meetings up to and including March 2021 as a response to the Coronavirus pandemic. We have been informed by the Smallholders club that they will not be opening their function rooms until 2021.
In everything we do we are guided by the Government’s health advice and the advice of the U3A Trust, to ensure that we do not put our membership at risk.
We are, however, still active and open.
We offer a monthly newsletter that includes information about those groups that have been able to start up (with social distancing and within Government guidelines) and the growing number of interest groups hosted on Zoom. In addition, a growing number of our groups are operating with WhatsApp.
So, if you would like to touch base with others and perhaps develop old or new interests, East Medway U3A provides a friendly welcome to all. Membership (£18 per annum pro rata) is open to anyone who is no longer in full-time work and who wishes to take part in its educational and social activities.
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 speak to a member of the committee.
