January 2024. Happy New Year and a warm welcome to the website of Wetherby & District u3a.
Our fantastic and friendly organisation has over 100 groups covering a wide range of activities. My thanks, and those of the Committee, go to our Group Leaders, who continue to do a superb job in co-ordinating activities. The u3a relies on volunteers – it is a movement run by the members, for the members; everyone contributes. Unfortunately some groups have closed due to a lack of volunteers but, on the other hand, new groups are in the pipeline. Please see the Group Leader’s page for information about running a group.
Please take care. Chair Wetherby & District u3a
