Your u3a is organising a stand at a few local events, to attract new members from outside the Syston area.

We are looking for a few volunteers to help us 'man' the stands.

If you feel you have a few hours to spare, it would be greatly appreciated if you could contact our chairman, Clive Iliffe: sadu3achair@gmail.com  or Jill Kempton-Hayes: sadu3apublicity@gmail.com

Date and Event:
Rearsby: 31st Aug, 12-4pm.

Even if you can't manage the whole time, any help would be much appreciated.


Anyone interested in starting a Bridge Group? Contact Barbara Sargeant (Groups Co-ordinator) if interested: sadu3agroups@gmail.com

Interest Groups

Subjects are varied and range from physical activities such as walking, bird-watching/wildife, photography, and practical activities such as craft and knitting, various music-related groups and some more traditional subjects such as quizzes and book groups.


We are always looking out for ideas for new groups, and any member can suggest a subject for a new interest group.
