NEW Phone Scam using local numbers
Avon & Somerset Police

We are hearing several reports of members receiving scam calls from local numbers, these are where scammers are trying to trick you into believing they MUST be real as they are near by. One such example has been received from a member in Martock who had a call claiming to be from Ebay security on a local number, very handy if there was indeed a problem with Ebay as we may be able to visit them to fix the problem (After Lockdown)! but quite clearly a scam. Several others have been reported since from various companies and again the ploy is to instil a sense of trust in the recipient.

Do please remain alert to any calls you receive advising for example:
you have a slow broadband connection,
your loft insulation does not meet current regulations,
you have post from Royal Mail that has not been fully paid,
your Amazon Prime has expired or has been hacked,
these will almost certainly be scams and if in doubt hang up, let the phone line clear for at least 5 minutes and then call the company back on a number you know, preferably on a different phone.
And please NEVER press 1 on your keypad when asked.

The S&G u3a Lockdown Band

During the lockdown a few members of our Music Jamming Group met weekly via Zoom. The leader, Tony Martin, came up with a way the group could still make music, with individual contributions combined into one track.
You can read the story, and hear their music by clicking here.


There is a Virtual u3a operating, independent of Street&Glastonbury, but affiliated to the u3a.

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.
