Whitley Bay


The Whitley Bay u3a monthly meeting is held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, at 2:00. We meet at the Linskill Centre, address below:

The Linskill Centre, Linskill Terrace, North Shields,NE30 2AY.

Apart from the AGM held once a year, there is a guest speaker at each monthly meeting, covering a wide variety of subjects.
Following the speaker there is a raffle draw, and coffee/tea and biscuits.
All members are welcome and enjoy meeting other members in an informal atmosphere.
Non members are also welcome to come to a meeting to see what is involved and talk to the committee, group leaders, and other members.

We also have a vibrant Social activity programme with many activities each month.
The events are published at least a month in advance and are featured on the website, in the monthly newsletter, by email, and at the monthly meetings.
