Plymstock & District

Membership

MEMBERSHIP FEES per annum

Single Membership £15

Joint Membership (husband and wife) £28

This includes a capitation fee of £3.50 to the national organisation (The Third Age Trust) which provides a wide range of services and benefits including liability insurance cover. If you are already a member of another U3A Group, your fee with us would be reduced by the amount of the capitation fee and would be £11.50 for Single Membership and £21 for Joint Membership. Renewal fees are due after 31st March each year, regardless of when you joined which does mean that your first year of membership may not be for a full 12 months. If you would like to apply for membership, please contact the Membership Secretary or come along and join at a monthly General Meeting.

If you would like a taster before deciding to join, we are happy to welcome you to two of our meetings, either the General Meeting or a Group Meeting, but after that we would ask you to commit to a full membership.
