WHAT WE DO
St Albans U3A
is a self-help organisation run entirely by its members who organise a
very wide range of activities. There are more than 130 Groups covering arts and
crafts, history, languages, sports and much more. Members also organise social
events, outings, theatre trips and holidays.
We normally hold
meetings and talks twice a month, on Wednesdays at Marlborough Road Methodist
Church and on Tuesdays at the YMCA Gym, Russet Drive, Highfield . These meetings are an
opportunity to meet fellow members, catch up on the latest news, browse
the Groups and Trips notice boards and borrow books and jigsaw puzzles.
We have a
varied programme of talks given by invited speakers - see the Meetings and Talks page
for more details. Members
attending the talks are encouraged to give feedback to the Speaker Secretary, who organises the talks, or to any member of the Executive Committee.
Suggestions for future speakers - including U3A members who would be interested
in giving a talk on their 'specialist subject' - are also very welcome.
Three times a
year we publish our U3Alife newsletter. You can submit contributions - articles
on group activities, creative writing, poetry, musings on life in general
- to the editor, Hazel Eggleton; the deadline is usually a month
before publication. You can also submit items to the Webmaster for
publication on the Members' News page of this website; they will also be
considered for inclusion in U3Alife.
