Mull & Iona


As well as the Special Interest Groups, we have regular Open Meetings which are usually held in Salen Church Hall. Please check details of individual meetings in case of a venue change .

These meetings provide an opportunity to meet other members, share experiences and discover what groups are on offer now or in the future. Usually there is a speaker but always tea/coffee and light refreshments.

If you would like to know more about our U3A please come along to one of these meetings, you will be made most welcome.
