Minehead & District

Events – Regular and Occasional

These are held (for the first 5 months of 2018 at least) on the third Thursday and are listed below as 'Meetings'. Tea/coffee and biscuits are served from 10.15 to 10.45; the speaker or speakers start at 11 and we usually finish around 12 noon. Members do not have to pay to attend, but visitors are asked for a small donation.

From January 2018 the venue will be the Baptist Church hall, The Parks, Minehead, TA4 8BS. Please see the link (top right) for details about the new venue for the Coffee Mornings. Help for U3A members with mobility problems Anyone unable to walk from the Co-op car park to the Baptist Church and wanting a lift there and back, should contact Jan Lowy on 01643 709127.

Our Annual General Meeting is in May, meaning an earlier start to proceedings, so that we can fit in either a speaker or other form of entertainment as well as the 'business'. There are no coffee mornings in August and December.

In some years we hold a Special Interest Day, a whole day meeting or outing. The next Special Interest Day is on 15th March 2018, and includes lunch (not cost to members). See below for more information.

----- We arrange occasional coach outings. We aim for variety and, where possible, a combination of venues, within a reasonable radius so that we don't spend all day on the coach. Some outings for 2017 and 2018 have included a visit to Highgrove House and to the BBC in Bristol, and to Hinkley Point. Watch this space for more information and use the Contact page to register your interest or suggest your own ideas for possible outings.

Don't forget that the various interest groups arrange visits and outings too!
