In addition to members’ Art and
Gardening shows, we have now added an exhibition of members’ CRAFT projects. This
includes the work of our Craft Group and other members who have been busy in their
craft rooms and workshops. This is our final exhibition for the time being,
while at least some of our DU3A activities begin to resume. To access all the current
and recent shows, see ‘Viewing’ further below.
Our second quiz, featuring places
visited by our Walking Groups, is now listed on the Quizzing page, together with answers to Quiz 1. For access, see
‘Viewing’ further below.
Tell Your Story
We have added some more stories to the list but we do need more. Please keep them coming. To see the list of stories, see 'Viewing' below.
The Virtual Exhibitions, Tell
Your Story and Quizzing pages are now all clustered
together in the 'Member Pages' area. To find out more and view the shows,
the menu bar above, choose and click the appropriate sub menu button,
enter Username and Password in lower case, then click the ‘Sign In’ button.
We hope you find something interesting within our wide range of regular talks and group activities. 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 the area.
We started in 1990 and now have 550 members. New members are very welcome and have the opportunity to participate in the interests described below.
General Meeting Talks
We have regular talks at our General Meetings, usually three per month and covering a wide range of subjects. They all take place in Dorridge Village Hall, Wednesday or Thursday, at 2.0pm. To see this year's programme of talks, click General Meetings.
This year's new meeting programme got off to a good start in January, with 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. To see the activity list and the days they meet, click Activity Groups.
In addition to all the activities mentioned above, coach trips are periodically organised to places of interest. 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.
Who Can Join?
Anyone in their third age (after the second age of full-time employment).
