Quilting for All 2019

This group were asked to quilt bed covers specifically for dementia patients at West Mendip Hospital, so that the patients could easily identify their bed, something they find hard to do. A wide variety of motifs, including animals, birds, boats, flowers and houses, by a range of different patchwork methods, were created and attached to the centre of bed sheets.  Each patient will then be able to own their own cover, 

T'ai Chi 2019

Our three groups were joined in Feb 2019 by the Grand Master and Master of the WSDA.

The groups enjoyed and appreciated the knowledge of the Grand Master and Master which jointly spans well over 100 years. The 2pm group accepted certificates in recognition of their dedication. The 3.15 group were for this occasion joined by the 10.30 Tuesday group, no certificates yet but that will come with their ongoing dedication.

Many thanks to Steve Cousins for arranging this and for his continued dedication to the groups. Great job Steve.

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.
Click here to view and download a Membership Form. (For tax payers a Gift Aid declaration form is also included). 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.
