The New Eastwood u3a was formed on 21 January 2014 with over 50 members joining. We meet at Eastwood Baptist Church, Nobles Green Rd, Eastwood, SS9 5PY on the third Tuesday of each month at 1.45 pm, doors open at 1.30pm. Meeting finishes at 3.45pm.
Four groups were formed at the inaugural meeting, Walking, Local History, Family History and a Craft group. We are now in our ninth year and prior to COVID had over thirty active interest groups enjoyed by more than a hundred members. We are gradually getting groups restarted. You can see details about groups which have restarted on our Groups page.
Membership subscriptions are £20 per year. The easiest way to join us is to come to a monthly meeting as a visitor. A fee of £2 is payable, but is refunded if you join at that meeting.
The University of the Third Age provides, through members, life enhancing and life changing opportunities. Retired and semi retired people meet and learn together, not for qualifications, but for its own reward, increasing their skill level at their chosen subject.
The committee and group leaders are all volunteers who give their time and skills freely.
