Monthly Meetings

A Monthly Meeting for both members, and prospective members, is held on the 1st Wednesday of every month at 1.00pm - 3.00pm at The Riverside, Market Street, Whitworth OL12 8DP. We ask that members arrive from 1.00pm for the speaker to begin at 1.30pm, after refreshments and announcements.

Admission, which includes tea/coffee and biscuits, is £1.

Visitors (non-members) are always welcome and can attend 2 meetings whilst deciding if they would like to join.

The meetings have general U3A announcements, details of planned outings and events and feature guest speakers who cover a wide range of subjects. Anyone interested in joining the Whitworth U3A will be able to do so and Group Convenors will be available to discuss interest groups and vacancies. Of course, you will also have time to socialise with other members.

Outings will often be open to all Whitworth U3A members. More information about proposed outings will be available at the monthly meetings, on the Facebook page, via email, in our newsletter and on the calendar below.
