The S&G u3a Lockdown Painting Group

At the start of September, when it was clear we would not be holding any groups in a face-to-face setting, the Tuesday & Friday U3A Painting for Pleasure Group Leader, Jill Webb, suggested to members that they could continue with their art by completing a painting on a selected topic each month.

You can see how this has produced some excellent paintings during the last 6 months by clicking here.

NEW Phone Scam called Flubot
Avon & Somerset Police

We have been made aware of a new text message scam called Flubot.

This is a malicious piece of Spyware that is installed on your Android device once you receive a text message asking you to install a Tracking App due to a 'missed package delivery'. The 'Tracking App' will actually steal your passwords and other sensitive data, whilst sending messages to your contacts to do the same.

The text message asks the user to click on a link (PLEASE DON'T), doing so will take you to a website where you will be prompted to download the App (DEFINATELY DON'T).

Please forward any scam messages to 7726 (SPAM on your keypad), which is a free reporting service. Although this scam only appears on Android phones at the moment, Apple IOS users should remain alert as this could apply to these handsets at some point.

Please see the link below for information on the National Cyber Security Website. https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/guidance/flubot-guidance-for-text-message-scam.


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.
