John Pentith Chair




A warm welcome to the website of Wetherby and District U3A. Our fantastic and friendly organisation has over 100 groups covering a wide range of activities. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only limited activities are currently taking place. However, thanks to the wonders of technology, a number of our Groups are meeting via Zoom, the Committee continues to meet regularly by video-conference and we are holding our monthly Open Meetings in virtual format.

My thanks, and those of the Committee, to our Group Leaders who continue to do a superb job in keeping activities going. The Committee will continue to pay the costs of Zoom over the next few months to help facilitate group activities.  Please see the Group Leader’s page concerning the recent relaxation rules concerning indoor activities(20/05/21).

Please continue to take care. Keep safe and well.
