IMPORTANT - IS OUR INFORMATION UP TO DATE?

May 2022

Northumbria U3A relies on individual U3As proactively updating their contact details. A form for this purpose can be opened/saved below. There are two versions: pdf or docx, choose the most convenient for yourself.

The information provided is entered into the Northumbria Region Beacon system. The Beacon system is then used to send emails to different groups. It would not be possible for us to add (and keep the list up to date) of every individual member of all u3as in our region. Therefore, we rely on each individual u3a to forward these emails to their members, as appropriate.

The most-used email distribution list is to all Chairs and Business Secretaries. If neither the Chair or Business Secretary wishes to deal with forwarding these emails to their members then please let us know of another contact and we will add them to our distribution list.

Northumbria Region U3A

Until the eighties, when the boundaries were changed, we could have said that “Northumbria U3A Region includes Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, County Durham and part of North Yorkshire.”

But now, Tyne and Wear does not exist. As long ago as 1986 it was replaced by five unitary authorities (Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Sunderland). In addition there are four unitary authorities clustered around the Tees (Recar and Cleveland, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton).

So perhaps it is easier to say we have members in U3As as far north as Berwick and as far south as Bedale!
