Joining the U3A is a good way to meet people and to make new friends. We are a self-help organisation so costs are minimal because our activities are organised by our members, who share their skills and expertise. We hope you will join us and get involved – everyone has something to offer!

Membership of our U3A enables you to: 

  • enrol in one or more of our study and interest groups 
  • attend our monthly meetings to meet friends, have a cup of tea, and hear our monthly speakers
  • take part in study days on a variety of topics
  • enjoy day excursions, usually with guided tours, to places of interest
  • join in theatre and concert trips with other U3A members
  • receive a regular newsletter
  • and, of course, meet like-minded people and make new friends

New members will be invited to a welcome meeting soon after joining. These take place throughout the year, and offer an opportunity to meet other members, share interests and ideas, and ask questions of the committee members present. We look forward to seeing you.

The full-year subscription is £15.00, reducing to £7.50 from 1st July. There is also a £3.50 reduction if you are already a member of another U3A – please give your membership number and name of the U3A. If you are on a low income and thus in receipt of Government Pension Credit, the subscription is reduced to £7.50.

For an application form (which includes a Gift Aid form) please click this link and print. Alternatively, a form will to be posted to you on request by our Membership Secretary. He will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Please note that your initial subscription should be paid by cheque but, in view of the size of our U3A, membership applications can only be accepted from applicants who complete the standing order form for renewal in 2020. Should you decide not to renew in 2020, you will need to cancel the SO with your bank.
