Woodhall Spa U3A
Woodhall Spa U3A was founded in 2009 with 38 members. We currently have 225 members, but are limited by the seating capacity of our regular monthly meeting venue, Coronation Hall. Alternative larger venues within the Woodhall Spa area are not economically viable and, as a consequence, we are unable to take any new members at the present time. However, if you are interested in joining and you are not in full-time employment, please contact the Membership Secretary so that you can have your name added to the Waiting List. This is important because there may be opportunities at Membership renewal time (April) when existing members do not wish to renew, and also throughout the year, when some may move on to pastures new. Additionally, it may be possible in the future, if enough people are interested, to start a second U3A.
General Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month in the Coronation Hall, Spa Road, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6QD starting at 2:30 pm.
Proceedings usually begin with local administrative business and this is followed by a refreshment break and then a guest speaker. These speakers give very interesting talks covering a range of topics and, most importantly, members meet and chat with fellow members. The current list of speakers can be viewed by clicking **here**.
Members will receive a Newsletter each month, generally containing a Chairman’s report, notes of group activities and other news of interest. The Newsletter is emailed to all members with an email address and will be available for collection at the monthly meeting for those without email. If you would like the Newsletter to be posted please provide the editor with stamped self-addressed envelopes and copies will be posted out.
The Woodhall Spa U3A annual membership fee is currently £14 per person (£15 from March 2017). This fee covers attendance at all monthly meetings, receipt of “Third Age Matters” - the quarterly UK magazine - and attendance at as many group meetings as an individual wishes. The membership year runs from 1st April each year to 31st March the following year, but you may join at any time. If you do join, and you are a taxpayer, please sign the Gift Aid Declaration as it costs you nothing and benefits the Woodhall Spa U3A.
