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,

As I am sure many of you know, we at H & R U3A have a reciprocal arrangement with Wellingborough.  This has been the case for a long time.  We have just arranged a reciprocal arrangement with Thrapston U3A another near neighbour.  This agreement means that members from these three U3A’s can in certain circumstances join in groups organised by the other U3A.  Members must of course telephone the group leader to see if there is room, as home members get preference.  Sometimes, if the group is very small, it would be good to encourage members from the other branches to make the group more enjoyable.  This arrangement only relates to groups, not to the monthly meeting. 

Of course, our Digital Photography group has their exhibition in Rushden Library this month, so if you are in the area please go and have a look to support them
