In line with the latest update from the government and the Third Age Trust the U3A committee met today and unanimously agreed that our monthly meetings and group activities will be cancelled until further notice. In the short term, the AGM scheduled for 27th March has been cancelled and sadly the 10 year celebration activities in April (Sudbury trip), May (Petanque) and June (Canal trip) have been postponed and alternative dates will be arranged asap
This page is intended to highlight upcoming events open to the membership as a whole. Individual group activities and timetables will be found in the Groups section of this site.
These are groups whose events are open to all U3A members. Please check their group pages by clicking on the group name above for a schedule of their upcoming events.
After the successful try-out using Zoom we have decided also to run the Monthly General Meetings using Zoom.
For those of you who aren't comfortable with using Zoom we will attempt to record these meetings and put them on YouTube for any member to view. Whilst this is not ideal, it will at least give us an opportunity to meet in the virtual world until we can do this in the real world.
Monthly General Meetings of the U3A at 2.00pm on the fourth Thursday of the month in St Peter's Church Centre, Church Road, Glenfield, LE3 8DP
will resume when government advice allows
Our meetings are a great way to learn more about our U3A. Lots to see, lively chat, informative and entertaining speakers and a cup of tea!! You will be made very welcome.
If you have suggestions for speakers at these meetings, please contact the Speaker Secretary via the Contact Page.
This year is our 10th Anniversary and we are running 10 events which are listed below under social events. We hope you will be able to attend some of the events. To help our planning please register your interest as soon as possible as shown in the event details.
