Monthly meetings

We have had some fascinating speakers over the years, both from our own membership and from outside, and continue to plan an interesting programme.

Have you got an interesting story to tell? Or do you know of a speaker that the members would enjoy hearing? If you do, our Talks Secretary you love to hear from you.

Covid-19

Although all covid rules and regulations have been lifted in Scotland, covid has not gone away. Please continue to protect yourself and others using "covid sense" - see the current advice from the Scottish Government.

In general:

Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of covid or have had a positive covid test result within the past 10 days.

The Committee strongly encourages all members attending a meeting to carry out a lateral flow test beforehand unless you are already routinely testing twice a week.

Please check specific precautions in place as outlined in the monthly email or contact the Membership Secretary.

Under normal circumstances

Open meetings are usually held on the last Friday of most months. All of the meetings take place in the Main Hall, County Buildings, Wigtown.
Members, free; visitors, £3.

Refreshments are served from 10:00am, with the talk starting at 10:30am.

u3a 40th Anniversary

We'll be planning events later in the year to mark the 40th anniversary of the u3a movement - watch this space!
