Membership of Tweeddale U3A

Tweeddale U3A meets all the year around. Open meetings are held at 2.00 pm in the St Joseph's Neighbourhood Centre, Rosetta Road, Peebles on the second Tuesday of every month. Interest groups are very varied and include meetings and outings to places of interest. Information about these can be found here (link to groups page)

Members receive a regular monthly bulletin by email. Paper copies are sent by post to those without email access. There is an Annual Review issued at the Annual General Meeting

The membership year runs from 1st September to 31st August. Membership, renewable annually, costs £13.50 a year which allows access to all groups. Some ask for modest additional fees to cover the cost of materials. Members who join on or after 1st March pay a reduced rate of £8.50 to cover the rest of the year. Associate Membership is available for existing members of other U3As at £10 per annum.
