Welcome to Tewkesbury & District U3A

It is with a heavy heart that, in light of the current situation and in line with Government advice, the committee has decided that all TU3A meetings and groups should be closed until further notice. The situation will be reviewed monthly by the committee and Group Leaders will be updated as appropriate.

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.
