Are you able to help the u3a?

Could you help with some of the tasks that are essential if we are to continue offering all that members have come to expect. This is an excellent way to meet new people and although busy at the time, are usually enjoyable.

The following activities need volunteers. Please let us know if you would like more information by contacting our Chairman at or Jane at .

  • Helping at a monthly meetings and study days, welcoming members or with the teas/coffees.

  • Offering lifts to other members.

  • Assisting the team maintaining the website and other IT services.

  • Joining the Committee.

More hands reduce the load and some posts must be filled, for example our current secretary is moving away this year.
