Welcome to Selby U3A

Welcome! If you are reading this it means that you are someone with an active mind and the desire to do something with your time now that you are retired. So you are just the sort of person that Selby U3A needs. Whatever your interests we may have something for you, and if we don't, get a few friends together and start your own group. It's easy, and you will always find support. We currently have over 20 groups with Coordinators and several potential groups in which members have expressed an interest.

General meetings take place in Selby Town Hall normally on the first Wednesday of every month. This is where we meet, listen to a guest speaker, meet friends over a coffee and discuss the interest groups. Recent speakers have talked about owning a jet bomber, being a young farmer, Rudyard Kipling, and the importance of fair trade; as you can see we have wide ranging interests which reflect our members' wide ranging experiences.

Group meetings happen when and where the members of the group decide. Large groups tend to meet in church halls and libraries, small groups in members' homes, the decision is entirely down to the members.

The SelbyU3A Guitar Group would like to invite other musicians, in addition to guitarists, to join us. At the moment our guitar group consists of just accoustic guitars but we would welcome anyone with any skills on any instrument (stringed,wind,percussion,keyboard etc).

Or maybe you can sing and play tambourine and would like to come along- bring your own tambourine !

We meet every Monday, from 1.30-3.30 (approx) at the Selby Bowling Club, Baffam Lane.

We play and sing a variety of music- mostly pop, folk, country, and blues.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact Carol Hewan (SelbyU3AGuitar@gmail.com) for more details.
