Leigh & District


There's LOTS going on with the Leigh & District U3A but...

... this page only lists general meetings, talks and any other special events. It does NOT list trips or group meetings, and there are plenty of them.

General meetings at Leigh Miners are usually every 1st and 3rd Friday, starting at 1pm. For details of groups you need to click on the Groups tab above, then look at the Groups List and Timetable Summary. If necessary, contact the Facilitator for a Group to check details of next meeting etc. Please do NOT contact Leigh Miners directly expecting them to know the details - they don't.

Here's a brief guide to navigating your way around the site to find the information you need:

Step 1: click on the Groups tab and scan the list of groups to find a topic or activity you're interested in. Note the day of the week, and in the month, in which the group meets e.g. 4th Tuesday in month. Some groups will have a "Dates for your Diary" section where you can see what's coming up.

Step 2: check a calendar for that date e.g. 4th Tuesday in August is the 28th, when the iPads & Tablets group meet.

Step 3: click on the link to the Group (in blue) to read any further information on that group's page, including the contact details for the Facilitator.

Step 4: if necessary, contact the Group Facilitator to check that the meeting is on.

Step 5: turn up on the day ... and enjoy!

All Leigh & District U3A events take place at Leigh Miners, unless otherwise stated.
