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,

Well, we have reached 500 members of our U3A and we havenít quite reached our 5th Birthday!  201 of us were at last monthís meeting

There is a second afternoon visit planned for the whole of the Northamptonshire Network of 10 U3Aís.  The first event open to the entire Network was last year when we visited Boughton House.  That was very successful which all those attending really enjoyed.  They found it very interesting to meet others from nearby U3As.  This summer we are visiting Cottesbrooke Hall (near Northampton NN6 8PF) on two occasions, Thursday 12th June and Thursday 24th July from 1 pm.  The cost will be £12 which includes a guided tour of the beautiful Queen Anne house c1702, admission to the garden and tea/coffee and cake. 

I know two of our own groups have been to Cottesbrooke, but I am sure there are many of you who would enjoy an afternoon at this lovely venue.  Details are on our website(see News Page).  They are opening the house early for us on these days.  If you have any queries, can you please contact Annie Curtis, Chair of Brixworth U3A the organiser on annie.chytil@btinternet.com but not Cottesbrooke themselves.
