Haxby & Wigginton


A monthly meeting with a guest speaker is held in the Wigginton Recreation Hall at 2.00pm on the third Friday of each month except August. Admission is £1 for members and includes tea and biscuits. Visitors welcome - admission £3. Meeting details may occasionally change at short notice.

Please note that the maximum capacity of the main hall is 150. With our recent increase in membership this has become an issue that we must take seriously.

Please bring your membership cards to assist with entry.

Second Monthly & New Members Meeting
This is a social meeting held on the second Friday of each month in the Wigginton Recreation Hall at 2.00pm. We have a chat over teas and coffees before watching a video recording of the speaker’s presentation at the previous month’s main meeting. The admission charge is £1 for members and £3 for visitors which includes refreshments.

Haxby and Wigginton U3A aim to ensure that all members can participate fully in open meetings and activity groups. The PA system with Loop facility is always used at open meetings for those with hearing needs. We also have three members who have volunteered to be *Helping Hands* at monthly meetings.
