Enrolment 2017

Welcome to Street and Glastonbury U3A. We look forward to seeing you at a group meeting or one of our U3A events where you will receive a warm welcome.

Street and Glastonbury U3A has no fixed boundaries and covers an area beyond the village of Street and the town of Glastonbury including many villages in the vicinity. We are part of a unique and exciting organisation providing life-enhancing, life-changing opportunities to those who are retired or semi-retired; run for and by our members, who want to keep active in mind and body.

Our organisation is about learning new things, sharing life experiences, and most importantly making new friends.

As a member you will have access to the many and varied group activities – all run by our members.  There is no teacher, there is no exam; this is about enjoying yourself and learning for the sheer joy of it!

Retirement does not mean that we must stand still. It is a golden opportunity to take up new activities, to continue to learn, to laugh and live! Our aim is enjoyment – we want all members to see their membership as a means to enrich their lives.

Each year we typically recruit around 500 individuals as members and they participate in one or more of some 45 plus groups and events.

Our membership fees are £10 per person for the year September to August.

We also have an associate membership rate of £5 for existing members of neighbouring U3As who wish to join in on our programme of activities.

Most groups operate on a fortnightly basis for which a termly charge of £6 is made. Typically a term means 6 sessions. Please check individual Group descriptions for any variance in the fee. Individuals wishing to sample programmes are welcome. A nominal charge of £1 is made for such attendances.  Most groups meet between September and April but some also meet over the summer.
