Welcome to U3A SUTTON BRIDGE Web Site
Welcome to our U3A!
We are a friendly group of over 130 members and, currently, 24 Interest Groups, with more in the pipeline.
We cover a large geographical area encompassing Sutton Bridge, Long Sutton, Holbeach and all surrounding villages.
We hold monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of every month, with doors opening at 1:30pm for a 2:00pm start. The afternoon begins with the Chairman's welcome, followed by announcements and other U3A business. Most months, we then settle back to enjoy an invited speaker. For future speakers please see the EVENTS page on this website, our publicity notices and our newsletter.
Social time with refreshments follows the speaker. During this time, friends can meet up for a chat, and there's time to make new friends too. Tea, coffee and biscuits are served, and prizes can be won in our fund-raising raffle.
This is also a chance to look for news on the notice board, and to browse the Interest Group table, and sign up for an activity or interest that takes your fancy. Committee Members will also be circulating, and will be available to answer any questions you might have, or just to say hello.
All members are welcome at our monthly meetings, which alternate between The Curlew Centre (Bridge Road, Sutton Bridge PE12 9SA) and Market House (9 Market Street, Long Sutton PE12 9DD).
Visitors are welcome to attend monthly meetings with no limitations (apart from those set out below) on payment of a small fee per meeting. The fee will be agreed by the Executive Committee each year. Visitors will be encouraged to become members, and visitors who join at the monthly meeting will have their visitor fee for that meeting refunded.
Visitors are not permitted to enrol in any Interest Group or to attend an Interest Group Meeting until the membership fee is paid and a membership number issued. Visitors are not eligible to vote or participate in the Annual General Meeting or attend the Christmas social event.
We distribute a monthly newsletter, full of news and information. The newsletter is sent to most members via email, but printed copies are available on request.
Thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to welcoming you to our U3A!
The University of the Third Age
The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through individual U3As, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications, but for its own reward; the sheer joy of discovery!
Members share their skills and life experiences; the learners teach and the teachers learn, with no distinction between them.
The U3A movement is a charitable concern supported by its national organisation, The Third Age Trust.
