We make a small charge at each meeting to cover the cost of the hall, tea/coffee and biscuits and any speaker's fee.

Members of the U3A are always welcome to join the group at our regular meetings. There is no need to contact us - just turn up.

We hold a library of relevant books, CDs and County Magazines.
