We hold our monthly general meetings in Wem Town Hall on the first Tuesday of the month, where all are welcome. The meeting room will be open at 10.00am for a 10.30am start. Each month we usually have various updates about our U3A, followed by a guest speaker (see below). There are no monthly meetings in January (New Year break) and August (holiday period).
