A warm welcome to Julie and Marilyn who have joined the committee.
The committee members will do their best to serve the growing membership of our U3A but it is YOUR organisation. They would welcome suggestions, offers of support and help at any time. Remember - you don't have to be on the committee to be involved.


Crewkerne U3A

Following their successful Study Day about the Jurassic Coast last year, Crewkerne U3A are repeating it. Full details can be found on the Events Page and early booking is advised.


New Page for our Quarterly Magazine

Sometimes, (and we hope it increases), the Editor of our Quarterly Magazine has too much to go in!
In the latest issue the Member Profile of Janet Hayter had to be edited but we thought that it was so good we wanted to produce it all. So, I have created a space on the Publication Group Page for such an occasion.
The new page is called 'Magazine Extra!' and can be accessed by clicking on the Link from the Publication Group.
Please take a look and, if you feel inclined, let us know what you think?

Steve Davis. Webmaster.

Are you one of our founder members? Have you anything about our U3A from those early days? If so and you think it is relevant would you please get in touch with Joan Banbury ( or any member of the committee.
Joan is currently archiving electronically lots of the U3A material. Can you help?
