Welcome to the web site of the King's Lynn u3a.
King's Lynn is a market town and it was a significant port from medieval times onwards, trading with the Hanseatic League. It is the largest town in West Norfolk having a population of about 42,800 (2007).
KL u3a celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016, and we are looking forward to our 30th anniversary next year. We draw our members mainly from King's Lynn and its surrounding villages though some come from as far as Downham Market, Wisbech and Thetford. We have over 400 members.
We are a self-financing, self-learning organisation for anyone no longer in full-time employment. There is a general meeting once a month to which everyone is entitled to be present. It is here that we meet old friends and make new ones in an informal, relaxed atmosphere over tea or coffee and a biscuit, where business, social and a discussion or lecture make up the order of the meeting. It is friendly and convivial and, for many people, it is the focal point of the calendar. Everyone is welcomed and new members quickly find others with similar interests.
Prospective members may attend a maximum of two general meetings
and if there is enough room, sample a special interest group. After that, they may opt to become members, sign a form and pay an annual subscription (currently £15). Those joining in the last quarter of the year will pay only half the rate for that year. If you are a current member of another u3a but wish to join any of our activity groups, you can become an Associate member at the cost of £10.00 per year.
