Events and Outings

Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month (except August) in the Wadesmill Suite at Wodson Park Sports and Leisure Centre, Wadesmill Road, Ware, SG12 0UQ.

The doors open at 1.15pm with the talk starting at 1.45pm. After the talk, refreshments are served and there is an opportunity to book an outing, speak to some of the group leaders, browse the book stall, etc.

If you are not yet a member of Ware U3A, you are more than welcome to join us at one of the monthly meetings; we make a small charge of £2 which is deducted from the membership fee if you decide to join.

Wodson Park is located on the northern edge of Ware. To get there:

• Car - Sat Nav SG12 0UQ will lead you directly to their car park

• Public transport - Bus route 331 has stops outside Wodson Park; bus routes 383, 384, M1 and M2 all stop in nearby Quincey Road. However, if you have difficulty using public transport, we may be able to organise a lift. Please send us a message to see if we can arrange something for you.
