Events

Due to the CORONAVIRUS crisis all U3A meetings in person are currently suspended until further notice.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EVENTS run for members include coach trips and social outings. Our trips and outings are open to all members with charges depending on costs.

SPEAKER MEETINGS are usually held monthly on the LAST MONDAY of the month at Exning Road Club starting at 2.30pm and are available for all members, and prospective members, at no charge.

Our speakers at the monthly meetings are carefully chosen to provide interesting and stimulating talks on a wide variety of interests and topics. We welcome any feedback on the speaker or the meeting in general. After the formal presentation there is always the opportunity to talk to the speaker individually and to chat with other members over a free cup of tea or coffee.

In these interesting times we are STILL MEETING via Zoom.
The invitation comes as an email to all members, with a link in the text. Tap on this and you get a dialogue to join the group. That's all you have to do.

On Monday October 26th Nora Gardner was our first external Zoom speaker, her subject being Food of both Tudor and Stuart Eras - this was the last meeting arranged by Niddy, as she is now handing over to Trish Newell. (Tel: 01638 611023)

There are also Third Age Trust National Events, including quizzes, challenges, and projects. For more information click NATIONAL EVENTS, only open to u3a members.

Tue Nov 16th THURSFORD SPECTACULAR
All those who had booked their tickets for 2020 have had an email or a phone call to say that the Thursford spectacular has been postponed and rolled over by them. Thus the new date is Tuesday 16th November 2021.
The coach company have agreed to this too. All timings will be the same and of course we will let you know as a reminder nearer the time, but it is something to look forward for next year.
