Totnes & District


Welcome to the Totnes U3A

We have been up and running since January 2009 and currently have 273 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 run a New Members' Coffee Morning early in the membership year.

We look forward to meeting you.


Colin Luker - Chairman


The membership year runs from 1st March to 28/29 February the following year. Single membership costs £17 and is due at the February meeting. Joint membership is available for £30.50 for two members living at the same address and receiving a single copy of "U3A News" (the national magazine). New members joining from September and those who already belong to a different U3A benefit from a 50% reduction in the fee.

Anyone in receipt of benefits and needing assistance with membership fees should contact a member of the Committee. (All such approaches will be treated confidentially)

Events & Activities

Except for mid-summer and December (see below), there is a meeting with a speaker on the fourth Thursday of every month. The programme of topics are listed in "Whats on". These monthly meetings also provide an excellent opportunity to meet other members, to talk to group leaders and to discover what might be of interest. Alternatively you can complete the general "Contact Us" page or study the individual group pages on this website. All groups provide a means of contacting the groups leader directly.

An email newsletter is published monthly to keep members abreast of what's happened and what's yet to happen. There is also a FaceBook page.

Every year we have a summer outing and a Christmas show & lunch.
