The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a national organisation bringing educational and social opportunities to people no longer in full-time work. It creates an environment where all can benefit by sharing knowledge acquired during our lives or by getting together to try something completely new.
Spelthorne U3A K2 is a well established and growing U3A serving Spelthorne, a borough in Surrey, covering Ashford, Shepperton, Staines and Sunbury. Currently, there are about 600 members enjoying around 40 widely varied group activities. There is something for everyone and new members are welcomed.
We are the second of two groups in the Spelthorne area and we are known exclusively as “K2”. We have our own constitution, accounts and registered charity number. There is also an elected chairman and executive committee which serves through its group leaders the needs of our members. There are occasions when we share our group activity with the first and older organisation known as SU3A.
Our Newsletter is published quarterly and we have monthly meetings (usually the second Thursday in the month 2-3.30pm).
After the announcements the meetings are addressed by a variety of lively carefully chosen guest speakers and meetings are well attended. Refreshments are available together with information about forthcoming events.
If you are not a member, we hope that you will join us. We pride ourselves on being a friendly welcoming group with a wide and varied range of interests. If you are thinking of joining, please email the membership secretary via the Contact page. Potential new members are welcome to attend two meetings prior to joining.
