Selby & District


Our monthly general meetings are on the first Wednesday of the month with a guest speaker (see below for details). We also hold a raffle and there is time to find out about our Interest Groups and chat to friends over a free cup of tea & coffee.

We meet at Thorpe Willoughby Village Hall, Leeds Road, Thorpe Willoughby, YO8 9PA. Doors open at 10.00 with the meeting starting at 10.30.

The Village Hall is on the Selby - Leeds/Sherburn bus route but please check with Arriva buses to confirm the times. There is plenty of car parking available and the Hall is fully accessible.

If you'd like to attend a meeting but are not currently a member of Selby u3a we would be very happy to welcome you as a visitor. Just message Pauline Witton, our Membership Secretary, from our Contacts page so that we can expect you.
