RAYLEIGH U3A MONTHLY MEETINGS

Rayleigh U3A meet at the Mill Hall Arts & Events Centre situated alongside the historic Windmill off Bellingham Lane, Rayleigh, Essex SS6 7ED.

Monthly meetings are usually held on the first Thursday of each month in the Main Hall. Parking is available in two Council Car Parks nearby.

The doors open to members at 1.45pm when soft drinks and biscuits will be available (if prefered coffee/tea is available in the adjacent Coffee Mill Bar). This is an ideal time to socialise, visit the book table, buy tickets for events and a chance to talk with fellow members and group leaders. At 2.30pm the Chairman’s Welcome and Notices, Group News and Event updates will take place followed by the Speaker at 2.45pm allowing time for questions towards the end.

The Meeting closes at 4pm.

Events over the last few years include a number of Study Days, a Trip to the Palace of Westminster, the Annual Christmas Lunches, Speaker Lunchs, Quizs and a Royal Variety Party Night during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year.
