Good morning. Welcome to Whitwick & District U3A.
May we remind you that the next general meeting and talk is next month. Further details are provided about these meetings below.
What is u3a? u3as exist to provide a forum in which retired and semi-retired people can get involved in helping to create, join and run a wide variety of activities which improve their knowledge and skills, enhance their physical and mental wellbeing and keep them socially connected in a friendly and informal environment. It is a non-political and non-religious organisation.
Central to this are interest groups of which we have over 40. In these we learn from each other and from direct experience, rather than being taught in a formal setting . There is no formal structure of assessment or awards. Any member can, and is encouraged to, form a new group within their own area of interest or expertise.
Our membership is drawn from North West Leicestershire, primarily from the Whitwick / Coalville area and other nearby towns and villages. Our general meetings are held on the 3rd Friday of the month at Broomleys Church Hall at 2.00 pm. You are most welcome to come along and find out more.
General Meetings have resumed on an in-person basis. There is now no need to book in advance.
AGM 2022 This will be held at 2.00 pm on May20th. The formal notice, agenda, reports and accounts can be found via the Members Area.
