White Cliffs Country

Events

White Cliffs Country have two monthly meetings, each held on Wednesdays; one week we have an afternoon meeting and Talk from an external speaker, another week we have a coffee morning, often with a presentation by a U3A member. All are sociable events with time to get to know new U3A friends over a cuppa, as well as enjoying talks on a variety of subjects.

Sociability is as important as learning and we make sure that this shows in all that we do; it is very evident in the Special Interest Groups, which are developed and run by members themselves, choosing their own activities and how often they wish to meet. The list of options has grown considerably over the years and you can see all the existing groups by visiting the groups page on this website.

And a sociable highlight of the year is our March Spring Lunch, a ticketed event to which members may bring a guest if space allows.

We re also planning a series of day trips for the warmer months.
