Our Wednesday meetings generally take place at Nairn Community Centre. Meetings are held fortnightly from September to May, and usually involve a guest speaker. The talk lasts about an hour, and we enjoy tea and biscuits and a wee blether afterwards. We also have a library of donated second-hand books - borrow any you like the look of, and either return it when finished or replace it with a different book.
The meeting starts promptly at 2pm, so please arrive a little earlier to get settled. There's a charge of £2 towards room hire for U3A members (£3 for non-members).
