Stop Press!

Thanks are due to Helen Verdier for leading the Discussion Group in Woolmer Green prior to lockdown. She now feels it's time to step down. If anyone would like to restart the Group (on Zoom in the first instance) to discuss current affairs and local issues, in fact any topic suggested by a member of the group, please contact the Groups Coordinator by email: groups@u3awelhat.org.uk .

Wednesday morning virtual meetings

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.
