Welcome to Wheathampstead U3A!
Wheathampstead U3A started in 2014 and we now have 320 members. The U3A is open to all in their third age who have finished full time employment, there are no qualifications sought or offered. Learning is for its own sake, with enjoyment being the prime motive. It is a non-religous and non-political organisation and promotes lifelong learning and social interaction. Members form interest groups to share educational, creative and leisure activities.
To join, please fill in the 'Membership Application Form' (available in Word and PDF formats) on the right side of this page -->>>>
Annual membership is £15 per person - or £10 if you join after 31st March 2019. Please hand your completed membership application and payment to the Membership Secretary at a Speaker Meeting or send via the post - please Contact the Membership Secretary for address details.
Monthly Meetings are planned throughout the year with a variety of speakers. These are normally held on the 4th Thursday afternoon of the month at the Memorial Hall between 2-5pm. Do try to sign in earlier than 2 pm. Come at 1.45 to meet people and sign up for new Interest Groups and for the Outings.
Special interest groups meet throughout the month - see Groups.
Visitors: for a small fee visitors may attend two Thursday meetings at the Memorial Hall (£2.50 per meeting) after which we hope they will join us. Please note that NO visitors can attend Interest Groups, participate in Outings or attend the Christmas Party - only paid-up members of Wheathampstead U3A may do this.
We are always keen to hear from members who wish to set up a new interest group. Contact the Groups Coordinator remembering to include your membership number.
