Three Brethren (Scottish Borders)

Monthly Meetings & Outings

Monthly Meetings - are currently held on the third Monday of each month, at the Galashiels Rugby Club, Nether Road, Galashiels at 2 pm. After U3A business has been transacted, there is usually a speaker and there will be time for socialising when tea, coffee and biscuits are served. There is parking in the public car park by the Borders College opposite. Occasionally a member of an interest group will give a short talk about their group's interests and activities. A £1 levy is made to defray operating costs.

We do not have monthly meetings in July or August. In the latter month we usually have a Summer tea party, but the 2020 event has been cancelled

Please note that some of the speakers listed, may be provisional so do please check this website, nearer the date. We'd hate for you to be disappointed on the day!

If anybody has suggestions for speakers please pass these to the Meetings Organiser, using the Contact page. When doing this please give as much information as possible about your suggested speaker, so that the person is then easy to contact.
