Yate & Sodbury District


Membership of Yate & Sodbury District U3A

U3A (The University of the Third Age) is a UK-wide movement which brings together people in their “third age” to develop their interests and continue their learning in a friendly and informal environment.

As the U3A is run entirely by its members, everyone’s skills and experiences are valuable and we all learn from each other by sharing our knowledge.

We currently have over 80 interest groups which are organised by the members. Full details can be found on this website and there are opportunities to meet new people, explore your interests or to introduce something completely new.

We produce a quarterly newsletter giving general information and details of recent group activities.

On the first Friday of each month there is a talk, by a variety of speakers, in Chipping Sodbury Town Hall where you can meet up and have a cup of tea.

Five times a year you will receive a magazine “Third Age Matters” which covers the activities of the U3A nationally as well as the latest information from The Third Age Trust.

There is no age limit to join and no awards or qualifications are required!

You are invited to visit any two of our groups twice to decide if the U3A is for you. It is then necessary for you to become member to comply with conditions of insurance.

New Members: Our current membership year runs from 1 May 2020 until 30 April 2021 and the annual fee is £8.00 per person. If you wish to join please download the Application and gift aid form or contact the Membership Secretary via the message link on the right of this page.

Existing members are able to renew their membership via the PayPal link on this page or by sending a cheque with name, address and membership details to the Membership Secretary: Mrs P. Clark, 22 Culverhill Road, Chipping Sodbury, Bristol BS37 6EZ
Credit card payments can also be made via the Paypal link on the right.

You will notice this year we have included In Case of Emergency (ICE) information on the reverse side of your membership card. We ask you to please fill in this information and carry your card with you when you attend U3A group meetings, activities or talks. Also take a few more minutes to ensure you have the same information set up on your mobile phone, search for "ICE on mobile phone" to find out how to add this information to your own phone.

Yate & Sodbury District U3A is sorry that as a result of Covid 19 restrictions activities will not be able to recommence until we have authority from the Government
