STOP PRESS: We have a new extra mailbox below which you can use to register for a monthly talk. Once Vicky has verified your membership she can send you an official invitation via our own system, in good time for the meeting.
If you are interested in joining our U3A or you want to renew your Membership you can use the button below to contact our Membership Secretary for more help and information. Alternatively, you can download the new form (click on 'Membership' above or to the right of this page) and print it. Send the completed form to Vicky with your cheque. Since the Monthly meetings have been cancelled there can be no payment in person for
Please note that New Data Protection legislation in 2018 (GDPR) means that ALL members, both new and renewing, now have to complete and sign a membership form every year.
You can communicate with the Chairman (anyone on the Committee) by clicking on the General enquiries button. Committee names and email addresses are also in the Waltham Forest Newsletter. If you notice errors in our web pages or would like the web editor to add new information, then use the 'website updates' option to reach her directly.
During 2019/20 the role of WFU3A Chairman will again be rotating each month: each Committee member will take a turn. The name of the scheduled chairman will be given in the Events Calendar at both the Monthly meeting date and the Committee Meeting date. Even if the incumbent has to be changed at short notice, messages sent via this page will always reach the Chairman safely. The email addresses underlying the buttons are generic and checked regularly.
Our current annual subscription is £17.00 p.a or £27.00 for two people living at the same address. If you join between April and August the full fee is payable. Join between September and December and you pay half fee (£8.50/£13.50). Join between January and March you pay the full fee, BUT it lasts until March of the following year. There is no discount if you belong to another U3A.
You are normally very welcome to sign in as a guest at one general Monthly Meeting and find out more about us. We charge such visitors £2.00. But during the Coronavirus crisis the Monthly Meetings have had to be cancelled.
If you decide immediately that you want to join then you can take out membership on the spot and your £2 will be refunded at the same time (not otherwise). But there is absolutely no pressure to do so. We maintain a New Members' table at every meeting, to make sure that you meet others and don't feel awkward. To try out or join a Group you must be a full member of WFU3A however.
PLEASE DO DOUBLE-CHECK that your email address is entered correctly below. A slip-up will mean that our reply doesn't get through to you. It's frustrating for us to get an error message and know you are puzzled by our 'silence'.
