Monthly Meetings


Monthly physical meetings are restarting in September on the last Tuesday at 2.00pm. (Please note new time). The room will be well ventilated and numbers will be limited to a maximum of 200. No refreshments will be served, but you are welcome to bring your own, if you wish. Mask wearing is optional. Please do not come if you are feeling unwell. Prior booking is required, so that we can keep a check on numbers attending so, if you wish to attend, please reply to Sue Shurville by using the link to the Chair on the Contact page.

The committee are investigating offering Hybrid meetings in the future, so that members who are still self isolating can participate remotely on Zoom, or via Facebook or Youtube. If you are unsure about using Zoom to participate, this helpful Help for Zoom guide published by Ilkley & District u3a, may help you.

Thereafter we will revert to our usual pattern with a monthly meeting is held for all members on the last Tuesday of every month (excluding December) at 2:00pm promptly in our meeting venue at "The Old Speckled Hen Lounge", Northampton County Cricket Ground, Wantage Road, or Abington Avenue, Northampton NN1 4PR.

( And a Free Cuppa ) !!

Please note that Membership Cards must be shown when attending all Monthly Meetings.


Please note that the doors will NOT be open until 1.30 pm enabling your Committee to prepare the seating, etc.


Tea and Coffee volunteers

Volunteers serve the tea and coffee (4 people) at each general meeting. You need to arrive at the meeting between 1.30pm and 2pm to set up.


Group displays will be shown at monthly General Meetings to allow groups to share what they do with the membership of Northampton u3a. If you want your group to participate in this, please contact Marie Catling.
