    Website Visitors


    Thank you for visiting our website. Unfortunately, our activities are still frozen or severely restricted by the current Covid-19 rules. But at some stage in the foreseeable future we do hope to get back to something like our normal activities as described below.


    Dorridge U3A started in 1990 and we now have around 550 members. New members are very welcome and have the opportunity (in normal circumstances) to participate in the activities described below, We hope you find something of interest.


    If you are new to the Dorridge area, then joining our U3A would be a good way to make friends and discover what goes on in and around this locality.

    Activity Groups

    We have nearly 40 different interest and activity groups, some of which are so popular that they are split into smaller groups in order to accommodate the number of members who are keen to participate.  With the slight easing of Coronavirus rules, one or two groups are having virtual meetings on 'Zoom' and some walking groups are out walking again. To see our list of activity groups and the days they meet, click Activity Groups.
