Events

SPECIAL NOTICE 16TH MARCH 2020- Due to the CORONAVIRUS crisis all U3A activities are currently suspended until further notice. The situation will be reviewed by the Committee mid-June.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 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.

I am hoping, that fingers crossed, that we can start again in September.All the Speakers have been kind enough to rebook, - Niddy
