Ver-Colne Valley

Welcome to the Ver-Colne Valley U3A

Hello and welcome to our website.
So you want to find out a bit about Ver-Colne Valley U3A?
Come on in and let us show you around.

We formed in January 2009 and hold regular meetings on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 10am at Greenwood Park Community Centre in Chiswell Green near St. Albans. And what goes on at these meetings?

Well there’s always quite a lot of chat, as usually around half of our 400 members set the world to rights over coffee and biscuits. There are also announcements about forthcoming events for members, such as theatre trips, visits to nearby attractions and holidays rather further afield. Our general meetings feature a different guest speaker each month too, covering a great variety of topics of interest. Click on the Meetings Tab at the top of this page to get an idea of what’s in store for the near future.

The Calendar Tab will give you an idea of the kind of trips, events and holidays that our members can enjoy. Again, as you’ll see, there’s a great variety on offer – designed to cater for the many tastes and interests of our members.

The same can be said of our Study Groups, which are the major focus of our activities at Ver-Colne Valley U3A. These groups are run by members for members and if you click on the Groups Tab, you’ll see the range of interests, hobbies and educational pursuits that they cover. There are nearly 60 groups, some of which are joint groups formed by a few of our members combining with those in neighbouring U3As with similar interests.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit our website. Hopefully, it will give you a flavour of Ver-Colne Valley U3A and of the opportunities we provide for our members to get together and to learn together – not for qualifications but just for the fun of it.

We look forward to seeing you again sometime.
