Much Wenlock & District

Membership and Joining Details

Our current membership is running at around 240. We charge an annual subscription, which is kept fairly low, on the understanding that activity groups are self-funding. The membership fee pays the "capitation charge" to our parent charity (The Third Age Trust), for the quarterly magazine (TAM), the monthly meeting speakers, with hall hire and refreshments, and the general expenses incurred in running the U3A.

We warmly welcome new members.

Membership fees are £15 for individual members and £28 for two people residing at the same address.

A reduction in the fee is made for members of other U3As and those joining late in the membership year. The exact details are provided on the membership application form.

Return the completed form to the Membership Secretary at the address at the bottom of the form. Please enclose a cheque for your fee, made payable to Much Wenlock U3A.
Alternatively bring the completed form and a cheque or cash along to the monthly meeting at the Priory Hall, where we staff a welcome table.

(NB: Please do not give the completed form and fee to a committee member or group leader to pass on. We have had problems in the past when this happens)
