A warm welcome to the website of Leek u3a. We hope that exploring it will encourage and motivate you to join our thriving and vibrant community. Leek u3a is one of the larger groups nationally, with about 900 members.

What is the u3a?
Our motto is LEARN, LAUGH and LIVE. In Leek, members enjoy opportunities to gain new skills or knowledge, to socialise and to exercise. There are 80 or so groups, most of which meet weekly, ranging from arts and crafts to languages, music, games and sport – you can download the Groups Brochure for more information. Also, there are many trips, short courses, concerts and talks you can attend as a member.

Where is it?
Norton House (on the corner of Fynney Street and Southbank Street) is the nerve centre of Leek u3a, but we use several other venues, including church halls, the leisure centre and the Watson Centre, close to Norton House.

Who Can Join?
Anyone no longer in full-time employment is welcome to join Leek u3a.

What Does it Cost?
There is an annual membership fee which for 2022 is set at £10, and most class fees are £1 for each session (but groups vary).

How Do I Join?
Either phone one of the committee to ask for details about Leek U3a and that person can explain how to join. Or visit Norton House at a time when a group is in session and collect a membership form. Fill this in and place with a cheque or cash in the secure red box in the reception area. Norton House is on the corner of Fynney Street and Southbank Street (almost opposite Abi Premier Convenience Store). Otherwise, please contact the Membership Secretary. Or you can come along to one of our Monthly Events which are held in the downstairs room at Trinity Church on Derby Street.

Once you are a member, you can join as many groups as you want, provided there is space.
