GENERAL MEETING

The Newquay u3a General Meeting is held from 10.15 am on the second Tuesday every month at the Lane Theatre, on the outskirts of Newquay.

At these meetings there is an opportunity to meet up with fellow members over a free 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 committee members and group leaders will make announcements.
