General Meetings, Outings & Other Events

General Meetings are held monthly, normally on the 1st Thursday of the month, from 2.00pm to 4.00pm. There is a charge of £1.50 payable on the door. The General Meetings are usually held in Knoyle Hall next to St. John's Church in Knoyle Road, sometimes if the hall is unavailable in the Church itself. But check the list below for any changes. Refreshments are served at the end of the meeting. Besides any U3A business and announcements, there is usually a main speaker on a topic of general interest to members, which is publicised in advance.
