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 interests 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 the Dorridge the area.
General Meeting Talks
In the foreseeable future, as soon as Coronavirus restrictions allow, we hope to resume our regular talks at General Meetings, usually three per month and covering a wide range of subjects. These normally take place in Dorridge Village Hall on Wednesday or Thursday, at 2.0pm.
Earlier this year, we enjoyed an excellent and very amusing afternoon listening to David Wood, talking about his 42 years as a master thatcher. Click here to read the full article.
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.
As soon as Coronavirus regulations allow, we hope to restart arranged coach trips to places of interest from time to time. Some of Activity Groups also arrange their own specialized visits and outings.
Outing to Chester
Our annual subscription is £15 and includes refreshments at General Meetings. Additional payment is usually due when participating in activity groups - to cover refreshments and room hire.
