When normal conditions return...

Monthly Meetings are held in Southgate Methodist Church, 45 The Bourne, Southgate N14 6RS. The meetings start at 2.30 pm, doors open at 1.45 pm. Refreshments are available before the meeting.

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.
