About Us

• ANNOUNCEMENT - Our outdoor groups such as strollers will meet when weather and Covid restrictions allow but other outdoor groups are now in winter recess. Other groups continue to meet on Zoom or via email. Please see the NEWSLETTER for the latest details regarding all of our groups.
• We continue to monitor government guidelines and will reopen groups if and when we can.

Newcastle Emlyn U3A was established in 1994 and currently has just over 120 members. This year from July 2019 to July 2020 we are celebrating our 25th Anniversary with a variety of exciting events.

The dedication of volunteers within the group is responsible for the organisation you find today. We believe ours is a friendly and supportive branch and that there is something for everyone in our twenty five or so interest groups. If you cannot spot exactly what you want, then you may wish to start something new and there will be lots of support to do so.

Our main monthly meetings are held at 10.30am on the first Wednesday of the month at the Community Hall, Church Lane, Newcastle Emlyn. We enjoy coffee followed by interesting talks and presentations by our own members or guest speakers.

It is almost possible today fill your whole month with a range of activities from our Special Interest Groups. They range from the purely social to the intellectual, not forgetting the possibility of physical exertion. A healthy mind and body. Group taster sessions are available before you commit to joining any group. If you would like information about any of our groups, please contact the group leader via the group page.

Annual registration takes place at the monthly meeting in July when our AGM is held. The current registration fee is £14 and any changes to this have to be agreed at an AGM. If you join from January onwards your membership fee is reduced for that year. By joining us we trust you will gain a sense of enjoyment, purpose and fulfilment, by taking advantage of all that is on offer and hopefully by making your own contribution.

Our U3A is supported by a committee of 10 members elected, in line with the constitution, in July at the AGM. We also have two co-opted members.

We have a monthly newsletter and have our own private Facebook group. You will also receive the national magazine, Third Age Matters, four times a year.

If you have any queries or questions about Newcastle Emlyn U3A please contact the chair Hazel Towle or secretary Jenny Evans.
