Totnes & District

Hello & Welcome

Welcome to the Totnes U3A

We have been up and running since January 2009 and currently have over 250 members coming from Totnes and the immediately surrounding area. There are a good variety of study & activity groups to match most tastes and interests, but if you have knowledge and an interest that we do not cover, please join us and start a new group.

We look forward to meeting you.

Events in near future........

Thursday 25th November at St Johns Church, Bridgetown.
Monthly meeting with speaker John Fisher. As it is our last speaker before Christmas the topic has been changed from that in the programme and is now 'Cracking Christmas- Pagans, Puritans, Pantos and Plum pudding'.
John Fisher bills this as personal trawl through time in search of the magic of the season, and promises to be highly entertaining.

Thursday 16th December at St Johns Church, Bridgetown
Our annual Christmas Entertainment when our own members entertain us with music, poetry and comedy and astonish us with the breadth of talent we have in our members.


Bob Dow - Chairman
