What we do
Ver-Colne Valley U3A is a self-help organisation run entirely by its members who organise a very wide range of activities. Currently, there are 60 Groups covering arts and crafts, history, languages, sports and much more. Members also organise social events, outings, theatre trips and holidays.
We have a general meeting on the third Thursday of each month at Greenwood Park Community Centre. These meetings are an opportunity to meet fellow members, catch up on the latest news. browse the Groups, day and Theatre trips and holidays and visit our book, card and raffle stalls.
We have a varied programme of talks given by invited speakers - click the Calendar Tab for more details. Members attending the talks are encouraged to give feedback to the Speaker Secretary who organises the talks, or to any member of the Executive Committee. Suggestions for future speakers - including U3A members who would be interested in giving a talk on their 'specialist subject' - are also very welcome.
We publish our monthly VCV newsletter. You can submit contributions - articles on group activities, creative writing, poetry, musings on life in general -to the editor, by clicking the Contacts Tab on our website the deadline is published in the previous month’s edition.
