Just because we’re locked down.. it doesn’t mean we’ve stopped having fun. Most of our 50 interest groups are running using Zoom, our monthly meeting is online and the monthly newsletter goes from strength to strength. Regional events from Geology to Ukelele Days are a fun way of getting involved, and there are always new skills to learn. All for £1 a month! Why not join us?
The u3a provides opportunities for retired,semi-retired and non working people in and around Bourne End to learn, laugh and live. Click on one of the areas in the list on the right to see what groups are being run in in your area of interest and contact the convenor. If you aren’t sure, you can attend up to two events before making up your mind.
Membership is very much open (click here). The cost was reduced for the 2019/20 year which started in April and is only £12—you can take advantage of this now! This allows you to attend any of the events which we organise, with small charges being made for many of these to cover costs. Our current membership is over 450 and there are already nearly 50 different groups operating in areas as diverse as Italian and Non Fiction Reading.
We are always thinking hard about what kinds of groups would appeal to our membership. Whilst our face to face activities may currently be limited we are open to any suggestions fornew groups. If you have fresh ideas please feel free to use this contact form.
For any of the groups, click on an interest area in the right hand column and then on any of the groups in that area.
