Syston & District U3A

Welcome to Syston and District U3A, we’re a friendly organisation offering a wide range of activities and interest groups for people who no longer work full time. You need no previous experience or qualifications to join, and our groups work on the basis of sharing skills, interests, and knowledge - our groups are run “by our Members, for our Members”.

To find out more about our activities and groups just click on the “Groups” link at the top of this page.

To find out how to join just click on the “Membership” link at the top of the page.

Interest Groups
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 suggest a subject for a new interest group. Click on 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. Each month we welcome a speaker and we make sure that a variety of topics is covered.

Our monthly meetings include a speaker and are currently streamed via Zoom. Click on the Events page to see a list of upcoming subjects.

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 October 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.

Official Documents (e.g. Data Protection Policy, Privacy Policy, Insurance Cover Note) can be found on the Publications Page.
