GENERAL MEETING

The Newquay U3A General Meeting is held from 10.30 am on the second Tuesday every month (except August) at the Lane Theatre, on the outskirts of Newquay, TR8 4PX (please click on the link for map). At these meetings there is an opportunity to meet up with fellow members over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits. There is usually a speaker, whose talk will start at 11 am in the auditorium, followed by an address by our chairman after which our group leaders will make announcements.

Please note that the Lane Theatre car park can get very full, so please park considerately. 85 & 87 buses to Morrisons, just a short walk away.
