Refunds of Dance Money

We have repaid the money to the individuals who had booked for the May dance which was carried forward until November, which we had to cancel. However, we have a pair of ticket monies left over as the name had not been given when they paid for their tickets. Therefore if you had paid for your tickets and have not received your refund please contact Marie Scales (secretary) via email or phone.
If I do not hear from anyone by November this outstanding money will be given as a donation to our U3A Group.

Wednesday morning virtual meetings

Following very successful initial meetings, we have decided to offer something every Wednesday, alternating between speaker presentations and “coffee mornings”. Bookings for these events will open on Fridays for the following Wednesday, and you will be reminded of this by email.

When booking has opened for a particular event, there will be a link to a form to reserve your place. If you have any problems with using the form, or if you have any questions about the event, please email:-

Details of meetings are now shown on the "Meetings Programme" page (click here.)

Following instructions from the government, it is with regret that we have to announce that ALL U3A Meetings will be cancelled forthwith and until further notice. This will include Wednesday meetings, outings, study groups and events, including the New Members Meeting.
It may be possible for members of individual study groups to remain in contact and you should contact your group leader to find out more.
