Renewal and New Membership Applications Still Being Taken
Membership Fees January – August 2021
To help our U3A survive financially during these difficult times, we will be charging a Membership fee of £10 to all new and existing members, from 1st January to 31st August 2021. This will help to cover the costs that we continue to incur. For example, office rental, Wifi, telephone rental, membership fee to U3A National Office (£3.50 per head, payable in March 2021) and the distribution of our quarterly Newsletter.
For those of you currently participating in either our online, or outdoor activities, your renewed membership will enable you to continue participating (provided outdoor Groups are permitted under Government Covid-19 regulations). You will also continue to receive all communications from your U3A, including a quarterly Newsletter and regular Mailchimp emails, keeping you up to date with all our news and activities. Also, you will have the opportunity to join any new Groups commencing. As usual, you will be given a new U3A Membership number, which you will need to provide when joining Groups and Social Events..
Members who choose to renew will also have the benefit of early registration, once we are able to offer a Programme of our more usual Groups and activities.
