Bourne End & District U3A
Due to the Coronavirus emergency, most U3A events have been suspended. Many groups are now using Zoom to hold virtual meetings.
The U3A provides opportunities for retired and semi-retired 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.
Membership is now open (click here). The cost was reduced for the 2019/20 year which started in April and has been reduced again for next April—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. In the year that we’ve started we’ve seen membership rise to over 400 and there are already nearly 50 different groups operating in areas as diverse as Italian and Ukelele.
A Crime and Thrillers reading group is just getting started, why not give us a go! A Singing for fun group has recently started and entertained us at the Christmas party. Also a Canasta group is going well.
There are some takers for an advanced German conversation group. If any members are interested please let the groups convenor know — you can use our 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.
