They are also setting up a 'Living History' project


Living History in Unprecedented Times

U3A members are being asked to help craft a shared learning project
where they create living history of this extraordinary time.

The project will look for personal thoughts, ideas and reflections on how this feels to you
and what you are doing to deal with it.
Members may want to keep an electronic diary or to find a little note-book
which you can have close at hand to scribble down thoughts as they come.

If you want take part - please keep in touch with us.
At the moment share your ideas at diary@u3a.org.uk
but in the next few days we will have a dedicated email address for this living history project.

So keep checking the website and national newsletter.



We will keep this website updated with information so please check regularly.
Please spread the word to friends so they can receive the latest information.

Naturally, we all hope that the crisis will be over well before our Autumn programme commences, and we can return to normality!

If you have any questions or concerns email:
info@streetu3a.org or complete the Form on the Contact Us page

Stay healthy and look after one another!

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 members and they participate in one or more of some 50 plus activity groups, coffee mornings, trips and events.

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

Click here to view and download a Membership Form. (For tax payers a Gift Aid declaration form is available on the Documents page). 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 many also meet over the summer when a separate programme is published.


New members assure us that the welcome they receive is very positive. Please explore our Events and Groups pages. We hope that you find something of interest. If not, and you have ideas of activities that would be of interest, we would love to hear from you. We would be particularly pleased to hear from anyone willing to lead a group.
