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.

Below is a list of our General Meetings and forthcoming General Social Events for your diary.
All members are welcome at these events.
|Dates for your Diary|
|Fri Sep 24th||Social Group||11am at the Heron Centre Cafe|
Newquay u3a Social Group has started up again. We hope to be able to get tables outside and under cover. We will discuss at the meetings whether or not to change the future regular day of the meetings, or the venue.
This is an ideal opportunity for new members to come along for a cuppa and a natter with other members and get to know them. We can discuss any forthcoming events that we know about in the Newquay area that we might like to attend with other members. We can plan short walks together, to meet up for lunch somewhere, or maybe go on a bus trip. When silver screen starts up again we can arrange to go together.
If you cannot make these meetings but would like to join our Newquay u3a Social Group, please email Valerie, the new group leader.
