We would like group leaders to remind everybody who hasn't paid their subscription to please do so.

Group leaders have also been asked to keep a list of members' closest family member or friends contact details, In Case of Emergency (I.C.E.)

The u3a asks that any member who tests positive for Covid-19 should contact their group leader or a committee member.

Group leaders can find many of the necessary forms on this website under the Members Info tab > Group Leaders/Facilitators

Our Indoor Garden Party.
The committee were very pleased with the number of members who attended our Garden Party at the end of last month. A total of 102 people, along with 13 visitors attended so thanks to those who also brought their friends. The tombola and cake stalls took enough money to cover our costs plus a small profit as well. We are already making plans for next year which will be held in July and will be renamed `The Not a Garden Party, Party ` as we were let down by the weather and had to abandon some of our outdoor activities.

Please use the Contact tab above to enquire about outings and trips
