We now have an established group, which has been running from May 2017.

Every year we have a minimum of ten meetings, where speakers discuss various topics from ancient to modern times. We do not expect U3A members to come to every meeting, although some do, so have a look at our speaker programme to see if there is any interest for you.

Also note we have an extended trip in May and two trips in July and August.

In 2020, we are planning to have a five day trip in Belgium, so look out for future details

We are now holding weekly electronic presentations every Monday.  Meetings at Hallcroft will only resume when the U3A Committee feel it is safe to do so, based on the UK Government's advice.

Please contact us for details of the electronic meetings.
