Welcome to the website of the Syston & District U3A. The group is relatively new, having been formed in the autumn of 2015, and it got off to a flying start with over 100 people signing up in the first quarter. We are now thriving, with over 400 members, involved in over 40 individual interest groups.
We are a registered charity and our aim is to facilitate educational, leisure and social activities at minimal cost for older people and those retired from full time work.
Subjects are varied and range from physical activities such as walking, hiking and table tennis, practical activities such as craft and knitting, various music-related groups and some more traditional subjects such as languages.
We are always looking out for ideas for new groups, and any member can start a new interest group. Click Groups to see the details of each group
Monthly General Meetings
We meet at 10.30 a.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at Malthouse Suite, Syston Conservative Club, High Street, Syston. Each month we welcome a speaker and we make sure that a variety of topics is covered.
Brief Group updates and information about wider U3A activities are given. Committee members will always be on hand to ‘meet and greet’ and to answer any queries, and it is all preceded by a cup of tea or coffee, where members can chat socially.
So, if you are interested in learning more about our U3A and its various groups, come along to one of these meetings and introduce yourself to one of our greeters who will make sure you are made very welcome.
Fees are paid annually in April and are currently £15 per year. This enables you to attend the monthly meetings, and to join as many of the groups as you like. You will also receive the monthly newsletter and quarterly issues of U3A News.
So that you can find out more about us and to see if it’s for you, you may attend two 'taster' interest group meetings and one monthly meeting as a visitor, without paying.
