IMPORTANT CORONA VIRUS UPDATE
Based on Advice from the Government and the Third Age Trust, All normal Meetings and Group Activities have been cancelled until further notice.
Whilst our Meetings and Activities are curtailed we can 'stay in touch' by reading and contributing to a new ad-hoc magazine called “KEEPING IN TOUCH”. See further details on the CONTACT website page by clicking on the CONTACT button above.
In September and October 2020 the committee are arranging 2 virtual Main Meetings using Zoom software to try out the technology and assess demand. In November a virtual AGM will be held using Zoom. The links to access the Zoom main meetings and AGM will be emailed out to members closer to the meeting dates. Details of the zoom meetings are given in the usual event table on the EVENTS page.
Some groups have adapted their normal meetings and activities to cope with the Corona virus

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 General Monthly Meetings (usually the second Thursday in the month 2-3.30pm).
After the announcements the General Monthly 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 or click on Membership Information Pack. Potential new members are welcome to attend two General Monthly Meetings prior to joining.
