Welcome to Flitwick and District U3A
Welcome to Flitwick and District U3A, formed on 31 January 2003. We have over 4500 members and on 5 July 2016, this U3A was entered onto the Register of Charities with the Registered Charity Number 1168040 .
Visitors and new members are assured of a warm welcome to our monthly meetings, normally held at The Rufus Centre, Flitwick, at 10:30 on the second Thursday of each month for a talk by a visiting speaker or one of our own members. The entrance fee is £2.00 for members and £3.00 for guests; Membership costs £10 and runs from February each year (see Links for Membership application form)
Please note that any visitor attending a general or group meeting more than twice will be asked to enrol as a full member.
Our normal monthly General Meetings resumed in October. after the enforced break.
There are, of necessity, differences to the past - due partly to changes made by the Rufus Centre and partly due to rising costs.
In the main tea/coffee will NOT be provided. The monthly raffle will resume in November.
We currently run over 50 groups and activities as listed on our Groups page.
We produce a Newsletter for members three times a year. Members also receive Third Age Matters five times a year from our parent organisation, Third Age Trust.
Please see our Contact page if you are seeking further information.
Our policy is that members pay for the services they use. Our annual subscription is a modest £10, and the meeting charge for most groups is £1.
