What is happening?

On this page there is a link to a pdf version of our monthly Diary. This is emailed (or posted) to all members each month, but by clicking on the link you can read it or download and/or print it. This shows all the group meetings, and any other events, over the next few weeks. Contact details of most group leaders are shown. Where contact numbers are not shown, you are advised to either come along or contact our secretary Juliet Burgess for more details (01834 219601 or email Our newsletters are also a good source of information.

If you want to find out more about us before joining, our monthly general meeting in the seminar room at the Bloomfield Centre is a great place to start. We can be found there on the second Saturday of every month. From 10 till 10.30, we enjoy meeting and socialising with other members over tea or coffee. Then we conduct club business and listen to special presentations by members or other interesting members of the community. It is also where you may hear about special U3A events coming up, make new contacts, talk to members of activity groups and perhaps hear about other events happening in the community. Sometimes, you may go home with some home-grown produce!

Our members are from a huge range of backgrounds, and often organise trips to the theatre, quizzes, gardening trips, etc. For example, every November we host an intra-U3A quiz.

If you're not a member, come along and see what we're all about. If you are a member, and haven't been able to get to a meeting for a while, we look forward to seeing you again soon. We'll have missed you!
