Welcome to Tewkesbury & District U3A
During the current pandemic, some groups are continuing to 'Learn, laugh and live' via social media and video conferencing, until we can begin to meet face to face again. Please contact the Group Leader to establish the current situation with any groups you may wish to join.
General Meetings will be held monthly via Zoom for the forseeable future. See Events page for details

We are aware that some TU3A members may be in need of support during these difficult times. While we are not a 'helping' organisation, if you or a member that you know consider that the Committee can be of assistance, please call 01684 325013. Some committee members, if not in isolation, will be happy to assist if they can.
