Events at Wearside U3A

Monthly Meeting

Our monthly meetings are held in the Bangladeshi Centre in Tatham Street, Sunderland on the second Friday in the month from 10.00am - noon. Light refreshments are served at 10am and ample time is available for members to socialise and sign up for group activities.

We usually start with a short business meeting when members are updated on National and Local U3A news and developments. Several of the Group Coordinators also report details of forthcoming events. This is followed by a talk from an invited speaker.

Potential members are always welcome and information about our U3A is available from committee members.
