Our monthly meeting normally takes place in the Southwell Leisure Centre, off the A612 Nottingham Road and next to the Minster School, between 10.00 am and 12.00 midday on the first Tuesday of the month. NOTE: Monthly meeting in January 2024 is the SECOND Tuesday, 9th, to give time to recover from new year [hic!]) If there is any change to the date of a meeting, this will be announced in Newsline and on the website well in advance. "Last minute" changes, if important (e.g. snow/speaker cancellations) will be sent as an email to all members.
Once a month, throughout the year, we hold a meeting to which all Southwell U3A members are invited.
The aims of these meetings are to:
Provide opportunities for members to meet over a cup of coffee
Offer a programme of speakers on a variety of topics
Keep members informed about the activities that are taking place within the Southwell U3A
We are very keen to ensure that all newly joined members, prospective members and visitors experience a warm welcome to the monthly meetings. One of the ways that we do this is by having a team of ‘Welcomers’ whose role is to meet and greet members when they arrive at the meeting, to show them around and to generally help them over the daunting experience of joining us for the first time and of arriving in a crowded ‘buzzing’ hall and not seeing anyone familiar.
