Whickham & District



Whickham and District u3a have joined up with 5 other U3A's in our region. The other u3as are called Dunston, Derwent Valley, Gateshead, Ryton and Prudhoe. We have formed a group called the Tyne Valley Network

The purpose of the Group is to share ideas, skills, discuss local issues, share interest groups, organise study days, organise workshops, develop and share speaker lists, share resources and much more.

Tyne Valley Network for the first time since February 2020 met 'face to face' on the 2nd November 2021 at the Bay Horse Horse, Front Street, Whickham. Representatives appointed to the Network and also Chairs of Whickham and District, Ryton and Derwent Valley exchanged the highs and lows of re starting their respective u3as after the lockdown.

Under normal circumstances discussions/business is carried out for the first hour and then those that can stay are welcome for a bite to eat and an informal chat.

If you want a flavour of what is happening please come along. The next meeting on March 8th 2022 at 11am at the Bay Horse, Front Street, Whickham. For further details please contact Cecilia Coulson 07881768301 or email cecu3a@gmail.com
