Ems Valley


We have around 500 members and we regularly have around 130 at our monthly meetings where we meet socially and enjoy listening to a speaker on a topic of general interest. Tea coffee and biscuits are served in the interval, and generally one of the groups will talk about their group.

Members are entitled to sign up for outings and social events and also join any group which has vacancies - please contact the Groups Coordinator or the Group Leader of the group you are interested in. The interest groups are run by members, for members following the u3a ethos which encourages self-help and learning together.

Copies of the Ems Valley U3A Newsletter can be viewed on the Newsletters page of this website. This includes many stories and pictures about group activities and upcoming events for this U3A.

Members can choose to receive copies of 'Third Age Matters', the magazine of the Third Age Trust.

Interested in Joining?
The annual fee for membership is £20 per person. There are usually no extras for joining groups, the price of hiring halls for monthly meetings is paid from the U3A funds. (Groups that meet weekly will get one meeting per month free, but must pay for hall hire for other weeks)
