General Meetings are held monthly on the second Wednesday of the month (except August) at  Meadowcroft & Quarrendon Community Centre (147 Meadowcroft). Business items are discussed from 10.00 – 10.30 am, followed by a break for tea/coffee and then a talk by an invited Speaker from 11.00 – 12.00 midday.  There is also the opportunity to book for  outings and social events.

The bulk of the U3A activity is within the study and social groups. Use the text box to find particular diary entries (eg type history just to see meetings of that group or September to see entries for that month). More details may be found using the Search box on the Home Page in the same way.
