  • enjoy a cup of a tea or coffee and biscuits
  • chat to old friends and make new ones
  • meet some of the Group Leaders and Coordinators and Management Committee members
  • join the u3a at the Membership Desk
  • renew your membership at the Membership Desk (if you are not able to renew online)
  • make reservations for theatre and concert visits
  • book/purchase tickets for social and other events such as the u3a Christmas lunch
  • hear about the latest u3a news via announcements and flyers (as well as just by word-of-mouth, of course)
  • get advice and help with your digital camera and computer and smartphone problems
  • learn something new or useful from occasional Guest Visitors
  • enjoy a refreshing cuppa, prior to attending one of the Speaker Meetings
  • purchase the exclusive u3a Diaries (only 1 left for 2022)
  • view and buy lovely cards hand-made by the Card Making Group

Rotas at Horizons

Chairs and tables are set up before the start of Horizons thanks to the members of the Chair Rota. If you would like to volunteer for this Rota, please contact its Organiser, John Dixon, who is very often present at Horizons.

Please remember to clear away your own chair and table at the end of Horizons if you possibly can.

There is a Welcome Desk Rota of helpful volunteers at Horizons waiting to answer your queries  – especially useful if you are a new or potential member wanting to know more about the u3a.

A Cheery Welcome from the Refreshments Table Volunteers
