Welcome to the Spilsby U3A Web site.

Website updated 30th June 2020

Group Activities

U3A Group activities may recommence as from 4th July 2020 where Coordinators are satisfied that they can comply with UK Government guidelines (currently a maximum of 6 persons attending an outdoor activity). However, a risk assessment form must be completed before the meeting and a list of those members attending the meeting must be forwarded to the Coordinator’s Coordinator as soon as possible afterwards to ensure that if any member showed Covid-19 symptoms that a “track and trace” system can be quickly established.

Spilsby U3A meet every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 2pm at the Franklin Hall, Spilsby

Members will receive a newsletter each quarter generally containing a Chairman’s report, notes of group activities and other news of interest.    The Newsletter is available for collection at the monthly meetings.   

The Spilsby U3A annual membership fee is £20 per person. This fee covers attendance at all monthly meetings and attendance at as many group meetings as an individual wishes.  The financial year runs from 1st April each year to 31st March the following year, but you may join at any time.   

Who can join the U3A?

Anyone who is no longer in full time gainful employment is eligible to join the U3A.

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 members’ 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, self-financing and, unless otherwise stated, meet on a regular basis in members’ 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 members’ 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.
