Welcome!

John Pentith Chair

Welcome 

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.   As we are recovering from the limitations placed on us by the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our groups have resumed their meetings and others are planning to do so.  Our long-awaited Annual Lunch 2020 was held at the Bridge Inn Hotel on 22nd September, having been postponed three times. After an excellent meal, members were entertained by Julian Norton, the Yorkshire Vet.

The Committee has continued to meet regularly on Zoom and will resume face-to-face meetings in October.  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 concerning the recent relaxation rules concerning indoor activities(20/05/21).

Please continue to take care. Chair Wetherby & District u3a
