What's On, Diary Dates and Forthcoming Events

Mansfield U3A's monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month (except August and December) from 10.00 am to 12.45 pm at:

The 1861 Suite, Mansfield Town Football Club One Call Stadium, Quarry Lane, Mansfield NG18 5DA.

It has car parking, disabled access, a sound loop system to help members with impaired hearing and free wi-fi.

The interest/study group leaders always try to be available from 9.45 am to greet the members before the meetings start so this is a good opportunity to ask about their programme of meetings and events and to enquire about vacancies in any group that interests you.

North Notts Neighbourhood Group
We are members of the North Notts Neighbourhood Group.

All eight groups have agreed that there should be a reciprocal arrangement between the member groups whereby, should you be interested in an interest group that a neighbouring U3A is running, you can contact the Group Leader or Group Co-ordinator of that U3A to see if they have a place for you.
If, however, you attend the General Meetings of that U3A, you would be expected to join that U3A at the reduced membership fee.

News from the North Notts Neighbourhood Group, the Notts Network and the Third Age Trust will be found on the News page and its sub-pages.
