Letter from the Chairperson

Thank you for visiting the Upper Bann U3A website.

U3A is an organisation for retired or semi-retired people.  Members share many educational, creative and leisure activities. By sharing our knowledge, skills and experience we learn from one another, making friendships along the way. In Upper Bann we have 293 members.  Normally, we would have over 20 active groups, but this number has been curtailed since the outbreak of COVID 19 which has limited the ability of groups to meet face to face.  However, we are now getting groups active once again and COVID permitting we hope to get back to some sort of normality.  The groups that do meet do so in a COVID compliant manner and risk assessments are carried out by Group Convenors and individuals are encouraged to carry out their own personal risk assessment.

Our current activities include:

WEEKLY                     Cycling Groups, French, 2 Walking Groups, Virtual Yoga.

MONTHLY                  Book Club, Poetry Group, Maths for fun (on-line)

All of our groups are voluntarily run by members for the benefit of other members.  You may see an activity that interests you or perhaps have a hobby that you want to share with others.  U3A is the perfect place to share your interests, gain new skills and make new friends!

You can come along as a guest to a maximum of two sessions, but after this you need to join U3A to benefit from our range of groups.  If you are interested in joining us you can download a Membership Application Form from the website.  Membership for the current year is £10, due for renewal in April 2022.

I look forward to welcoming you to Upper Bann U3A.

Alexandra Barr
