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

ChairWe have set up an Events Sub committee.  The theatre trips organised by members such as Heather Woodiwiss and Peter Head have indicated that there is great interest such things.  We already have Groups that organise trips, such as Gardening, History and Digital Photography but these are generally based around the interests of the Group.  The Committee feels that there we could be offering more in the way of social activities to our members.  The  Events Subcommittee  will  not be an Interest Group and will not focus on any one subject.  Its brief will be wide and could include theatre trips, outings to places of interest, days out to nice places and perhaps even a repeat of the “Summer Day Out” that was organised a few years ago.  Look out for more details but in the meantime think about what you might like to do, where you might like to go.  Give your ideas to Pat Bird or Jean Mole who are setting up the new sub - committee and will welcome your views and ideas.
