SPILSBY U3A

WELCOME

Welcome to the Spilsby U3A Web site.

Website updated  29th September 2017

The speaker for the October meeting is Fred Parker who is talking about bee keeping. He is a fascinating speaker and this topic should be both entertaining and informative.

Why join Spilsby U3A?

You will meet active and enthusiastic people with a creative and positive approach to their leisure time.   You will be able to take part in a wide range of activities through various groups of which there are already 20 up and running.

Groups are formed in response to membersí suggestions.   If you have an interest and would like to share this with others, you can propose a group and see who is interested in joining.   

U3A subject groups are self-organising and, unless otherwise stated, meet on a regular basis in membersí own   homes.    They each have a co-ordinator who may or may not be an expert in the subject to be studied but who is willing to do some of the organisation. Meetings can take place weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on the subject and the membersí preferences with normal breaks for Christmas and holidays.

You can join as many or as few groups as you wish. The groups aim to provide an opportunity for people to increase their knowledge in a relaxed and friendly way. There are no tests and no exams!

Please check the list of different Groups on the Group page.
