Members will need to show their membership cards at the monthly meetings.

Visitors are welcome to attend two monthly meetings free of charge. Attendance thereafter will require a membership fee to be paid. Visitors are also welcome to attend a ‘taster’ session at any of our available interest groups, subject to there being a vacancy, and no fee will be charged. However, those who wish to attend further sessions will need to become members of Palmers Green & Southgate U3A before joining the group and, in addition, pay any fees required by the group.
