New Members Welcome Info
New Member Welcome Page
Welcome to Forfar & District U3A. We hope this is the start of a long and enjoyable association you will have with the group. Your membership entitles you to attend as many or as few of our ‘offerings’ as you like and once you feel comfortable you might want to think about leading a group yourself if there is a subject you would like to be involved in.
You will hopefully, at the time of paying your annual subscription, have received a Medical Information Card which we ask you to complete and keep with you if you are attending any U3A event. If you haven’t received it yet, we will get it to you very soon.
To get you started on local U3A activities we would point you to the following links on our website (which you can access via Google: Forfar U3A), within the yellow bar along the top of the home page.
• EVENTS - This is where you will find details of our monthly general meeting. Usually up to
100 members come along to hear the speaker for the day and to enjoy tea/coffee and a chat
afterwards. As well as the monthly meetings there are also details of some of the Interest
• GROUPS – Here you will find a list of the Interest groups we currently have meeting
regularly as part of Forfar & District U3A. By clicking on whichever group interests you,
you will be taken to more information about that group e.g. who leads the group, where and how
often it meets and any costs involved in attending. Once you have read that you will be able
to click on the next group you see that catches your attention.
• WELCOME – On the right-hand side of this page you will find a link to the Forfar & District
• CONTACT – Here you will find specific links to some of the committee members, which are
self-explanatory. On the right-hand side of this page you will find a link to the names and
roles of all committee members.
• CALENDAR Here you will find a note of the next U3A activities which are arranged in date
order. If you want to see what is happening on any particular date you can click on the link
that says ‘MONTH’ at the top right of the calendar list then click on an activity to see more
We hope this is helpful to you. If you want to suggest any changes to this Welcome / Introduction please contact any member of the Executive Committee via the CONTACT page.
