Monthly Meetings

Monthly meetings of Rayleigh u3a are now to be held on the 1st Wednesday of each month (excluding August & December) at The Mill Hall, Bellingham Lane, Rayleigh, SS6 7ED. The meetings take place between 1.45pm – 4.00pm and are open to all our members.

Monthly Meetings provide an ideal opportunity to socialise, read the notice boards for details on forthcoming events, buy tickets and visit the book stall whilst chatting to other members. A PowerPoint display on the stage also gives details of events and information to members. Approximately at 2.15pm we welcome everyone to the meeting and at 2.30pm there is a talk by a Speaker, usually followed by any questions.

There is parking available in the adjacent Pay and Display Car Park, or in two nearby Council Car Parks.
