South West U3A Region


We wish to show all Regional meetings, workshops and conferences as well as South West Study Days and Summer Schools on this page. People in the South West often feel that Study Day information sent from National Office is organised too far away for members to attend. There are quite a few study days organised in the South West open to all members, so this is a brilliant way for people to see much more of what is available. Please contact the Webmaster with any information you wish to be added.

We can now include Publicity for Open Days in a sub-page, which when requested will be found on the right under LINKS. These are events where individual U3As display groups, for both members and potential new U3A members. It is the best way to see what is on offer within that U3A.

There are now a variety of documents available to help organisers run a study day. They have been divided into 4 categories - Processes, Publicity Material, Spreadsheets and Signs required on the day. This can be found in a sub-page on the right.
