Non-members are welcome to attend, and we only ask that you sign in at the Welcome Desk, when committee members will be very happy to tell you what our u3a has to offer you.


Leaders of some interest groups may also be present to talk about what their members do and invite you to join them. The Book and Jig Saw swap table will also be there, so please remember to bring an item or two to swap.

As usual, the  Visits Team will be at their table outside the Hall, to provide information on our visits and outings, and to take bookings where appropriate.

Please do not attend if you have tested positive, are awaiting the result of a PCR test or have Covid like symptoms.


Due to ongoing restrictions we are not currently able to provide  your tea and coffee.  However, you are welcome to bring your own, to enjoy as you socialise in the Function Room.  We will provide the biscuits!
