Lancaster & Morecambe


We regret to announce that, with effect from 17 March 2020, all Lancaster and Morecambe U3A group meetings, monthly meetings, and educational trips and events have been cancelled due to coronavirus.

Further details and advice are available on the News Page.

We are not registering new members until after the crisis. However, if you would like further information about the U3A, please email the Membership Secretary.


About Lancaster and Morecambe U3A

Have a good look around our website; this will give you a flavour of what we do.

You can download a copy of the Membership Application form for new members. Existing members wishing to renew their membership should download the Membership Renewal form instead. All members should read the Legitimate Interest Assessment document which sets out the reasons why we process membership information.

Members of other U3As who wish to join Lancaster and Morecambe U3A should contact our Membership Secretary for an Associate Membership form.

You may find the Introduction to LMU3A booklet useful for information.

The documents are in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. If you have difficulty opening them, you can obtain the free Adobe Reader. Otherwise you can contact the Membership Secretary.

Please note that many groups do not run during August so you may wish to delay your membership until September when membership renewal fees will be due for the year 1st September to 31st August. If you wish to join before September please contact the Membership Secretary for advice.

Our annual membership fees are kept very low. This is possible because members carry out many of the necessary functions on a voluntary basis.

Single membership costs £15 per year. Those who join after 1st March pay £10.00. The subscription covers affiliation to the national organisation (the Third Age Trust), insurance and administration costs. All work is done on a purely voluntary basis, but we ensure that nobody needs to be out of pocket on essential expenses.

Please note that there will not be any membership applications processed during February. If you are wishing to join please send in your application after 1st March when you will have the advantage of a reduced membership fee (see form for details). If you were a member last year and you are renewing your membership you will need to pay the yearly membership fee not the reduced one.


If you would like a printed copy of the New Members' Booklet and an application form to join the U3A, or you would just like to talk about membership, please contact our Membership Secretary: Diane Crompton or Ros Nicholson.
