Please click on the links on this page for a PDF copy of the membership application form. Membership is valid until the end of April the following year. In the course of 2020 it will be possible to pay your subscription electronically using online banking.
Your 2020 subscription is valid until 1 May 2021, with a grace period until the end of May. If you do not renew by June, you will not receive the newsletter and you will be no longer eligible to attend interest group meetings. If you've let your membership lapse, of course you can always rejoin! Contact Hilary, the Membership Secretary (see Contacts page).
Please note that to save postage costs, committee members and other volunteers hand deliver as many membership cards and receipts as possible, so you may have to wait a little while to receive them if you haven't collected them at a coffee morning. Alternatively, if you're posting your application, for speed of delivery you may like to include a stamped self-addressed envelope with your form and cheque.
For the subscription year 2020/2021 our annual subscription remains at £12, which is the same rate as for 2017/18, and 2019/20 so represents a wonderful bargain! The subscription includes the newsletter by email, but if you prefer to receive a printed newsletter rather than the email edition, there is an additional cost of £7.
Gift Aid helps us to keep the fees down, so if you’ve not yet signed up for Gift Aid but are a taxpayer and would like us to claim Gift Aid from HMRC, please complete the relevant part of the application form.
U3A 2020 diaries
U3A diaries are available for only £3 each, with a page per week for dates/times and the opposite page for notes, as well as an annual planner and note section at the back. They are available from our secretary Jan Lowy (contact details on p8 of the newsletter).
Two brave and hard-working editors produce the monthly newsletter (10 per year – no newsletter in August or December). The newsletter contains essential member information, plus details of events and news from many of our interest groups. Members who've given us their email address will receive the newsletter as an email attachment in full colour! For an additional £6.00 a year, you may opt to receive a paper copy of the newsletter (but, sorry, printed only in black and white). Many members pick up their print newsletter at the coffee morning and we have a team of 'postmen' who hand-deliver around their home area and this helps to save on postage costs. If you could help us in this way, please speak to Alison or Margaret, the newsletter editors: you can usually find them in the entrance hall at coffee mornings.
Interested in joining? Please come along to a coffee morning as our guest to see what we get up to, chat to committee members and convenors of our interest groups, and mingle with members. To find out more or to become a member, please download the forms and either bring them along to a coffee morning or send to Hilary, our Membership Secretary. If you've any questions, send her an email via the Contact page.
Please do make suggestions at any time for visits, new groups and social activities that you'd like us to consider – just speak to any committee member at a coffee morning or give one of them a call. Alternatively (especially if you get a brilliant idea in the middle of the night...), use the Contact page.
Accounts and Committee Minutes
Any member of Minehead & District U3A may see a copy of Committee Minutes and Accounts. If you would like to do so, please contact the Secretary via the Contact page.
