The main U3A monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at the Pemberton Community Centre, H.E. Bates Way, Rushden, Northants, NN10 9YP  to which we invite guest speakers who cover a wide range of topics; the current programme can be viewed by choosing "Monthly Meetings" on the Menu Bar. The atmosphere is always welcoming and friendly and refreshments are available. 

There are lots of links which may prove to be of interest on our Useful Links page including details of our local MPs.  Also keep an eye on the News page for (hopefully) up-to-date items.

A Message from the Chairman

ChairHello everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed Christmas this year and on behalf of the whole Committee I wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year.  This is traditionally the time of year when we make New Year resolutions.  The well known ones are joining a gym, which lasts about a month apparently, or losing weight (we h ave all tried this I am sure). 

There was recently an interesting article in Third Age Matters which some of us still receive regarding new resolutions.   It was a letter from a U3A member.  He quoted the motto “Those who learn also teach and those who teach also learn”.   He said it could also be in relation to U3A “Those who contribute, also benefit and those who benefit, also contribute”.   I have often said in the newsletter that those of you who contribute to our U3A do benefit by making new friends and contribute in various ways to improve our branch.  We can’t do everything without your help.  So if New Year resolutions are on your mind, get in touch with any of us
