St Helens

How to Join

It's really easy to join the U3A. Basically, you fill in a form, hand it in, pay a subscription, and are given a membership card (with your vital membership number).


The committee has decided that current membership should run until 31st August 2022. If you are a member, you will not need to pay for next year’s membership. You will be able to collect your new membership cards (once they are printed) when we can meet or arrange a venue for their collection.
Membership is £15 per year. In addition to this annual charge, you will be asked to pay £2.00 each time you attend a Group meeting. The money collected in this way goes towards the rent of the accommodation. Each group decides how to organize and pay for refreshments and materials.

New Members fill in the 2021 Membership Form on this page.
Whether you are already a member or you are applying for the first time,
you can download a combined application/renewal form by clicking on the
link *"2021 Membership Form"* on the right hand side of this
page. Please look at the notes for help in completing the form.

When you have filled the form in, you can:

(a) fill in the form online, use fill and sign and send to the email address on the notes
(b) Fill in the form and attach to an email. (you can print the form, fill it in and then scan the form}
(c) Post it to the membership secretary at the address shown on the form.
