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 you are no doubt aware, we have had several collections on display at our monthly meeting in recent months.  Pat Bird brought in her wonderful collection of dolls from all around the world.  I am pleased to say that she brought them back again for another chance to see them.  Ann Kemp last month brought in her collection of boxes. 
Of course our Gardening group often bring in their plants for sale, and the Handicrafts Group show their clever needlework etc. twice a year.  I think our Treasurer Jean Mole said she had a collection for another month and in April, Phil Grace will bring in his cigarette cards.  I can’t contribute to these events as I don’t collect anything.  I knit dolls for sale on charity stalls.  If I have any in my possession before they go for sale, I will bring them to the meeting.  This idea is not for committee members or groups.  If any of you have a collection lurking in one of your cupboards let us know as our members would like to see it Chris
