Bourne End & District U3A

Due to the Coronavirus emergency, many U3A events have been suspended.  Many groups are now using Zoom to hold virtual meetings and some outdoor activities have restarted. We constantly monitor Government advice and adhere to the latest requirements . 

The U3A provides opportunities for retired and 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 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. 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.

New Groups

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.
