Further COVID news Please note, U3A Hitchin Walking Group has reluctantly decided that all walks are suspended until further notice.

Hitchin U3A members’ meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Mondays each month with short breaks for Easter and Xmas.  The meetings are held in the conveniently central location of Christchurch, Bedford Rd (opposite Waitrose) - click to see map.

Meetings start at 2.15pm until 4pm - registration from 1.45pm. There is a full program of speakers throughout the year on a wide range of interesting topics - see below for details of upcoming talks - click on the link for a full, printable, programme.  After the talk tea and biscuits are served by one of the groups, giving an opportunity to meet and chat with friends in a pleasant environment.
