Our main meetings are held at 2.30pm on the third Friday of each month at:

Colbury Memorial Hall,
Colbury, Near Ashurst,
Totton, SO40 7EL

Regular events.

Many activities are held regularly. Please see the relevant page under the 'Groups' tab for more detail about regular events. Other events such as Lunches, Theatre, Scrabble, Outings, Questors and Garden visits are arranged when places or performances become available and are advertised at the monthly main meetings.


We really do need prompt payment for events especially where we have had to purchase tickets in advance, otherwise the funds may be in negative balance.

If you can’t attend an outside activity or outing at the last minute please let the Group Co-ordinator know so that people and transport are not kept waiting for you.


If you are participating in any Totton South U3A trip or event, please read the following information carefully.
It is the personal responsibility of each member to decide on their own capability to participate in any trips/events organised by Totton South U3A. By committing to any activity you will be declaring that you are fit and able to travel and/or undertake the activity.
