Why join a U3A?
Membership of a U3A is open to all retired or semi-retired people and no qualifications are needed.
Petersfield U3A offers a wide range of groups, active, educational and social and becoming a member gives you an opportunity to participate in activities which interest and stimulate with others who share those interests. Detailed information about our groups is shown on the Group page. To find out more and get details of how to get in touch, just click on Group at the top of this page.
If you can’t find what you want on this website, contact any of the committee members and they will be only too pleased to help.
How do I join?
Joining is very simple and can be done at any time. Simply download an Application form complete it and send it to the Membership Secretary. Our preferred form of payment is by standing order. Please download the Standing Order Payment form, complete and send this to the Membership Secretary, together with a stamped addressed envelope so that your membership card can be posted to you. If you can only pay by cheque, please send your cheque for £15, payable to Petersfield U3A to the Membership Secretary, together with a stamped addressed envelope.
Once you have joined, you can get in touch with any Group in which you are interested and take part in other U3A activities. Some groups may be full and have a waiting list, but most are happy to welcome new members.
If you have any queries, please contact the Membership Secretary, who will be pleased to help. You can email via the message link at the top right of this page.
How much will it cost?
Our membership fee is £15.00, payable by the end of September each year. To simplify our administration we do ask that you pay annually, by Standing Order, and a form will be sent to you with your Renewal Invitation at the beginning of August. The fee covers the cost of affiliation to the Third Age Trust and the day-to-day running expenses of Petersfield U3A, including monthly meetings. A small charge is made by some activity groups to cover particular expenses such as speakers, materials or room hire and certain social events and outings will also incur an extra charge. The fee of £15 for new members joining after the beginning of May will cover membership until August of the following year.
