There is a separate Members Area containing reports and other documents which are only available to members.

You will need the new Name and Password, which you can find at the end of Newsletters dated after July 2021.
Newsletter July 2021 and earlier gave the old password, which is now obsolete.


Our Membership year starts on 1st September. A reminder will be sent to all members a short while before then.

If you are paying by Direct Debit or Standing Order, your membership will be renewed automatically.
If you pay another way - click on Renew Membership


Trial Membership?

If you are interested in joining us but not sure, you can attend two monthly or group meetings before you decide. You can just turn up to a monthly meeting, but please get in touch with us (see the Contact us page) before going along to a group meeting, to check that there is a vacancy.

Benefits of membership

Members may attend any of the monthly meetings, seminars and social events, and may join any number of activity groups, subject to availability of places.

When you join you will be sent a copy of our Newsletter which is issued three times a year, and U3A News, the magazine of the Third Age Trust which is issued four times a year.

What does it cost?

There is an annual subscription of £9 with some reduction for special cases as shown on the Membership Form. Also, a small fee, usually £1.50, is charged for each attendance at group meetings (but only where these are held in rented rooms).
