Belper & District

Welcome to Belper U3A

If you are retired, semi-retired or about to retire (whatever your age), you are welcome to join us.

Although we are a relatively new U3A, having celebrated our 5th anniversary in 2012, we host approximately 60 interest groups, have more than 300 members and we're still growing!

We provide the opportunities for education, recreation and companionship in a mix of activities of your choosing.

Aims and Principles of U3A

This site aims to bring information about our U3A, the area we cover; its open meetings; outings; groups; and events. We hope you find it useful.

Open Meetings are held from 10-12.30pm on the first Friday of each month at Strutts Community Centre, Derby Road, Belper.

These meetings are informative and friendly and future members are welcome to all our monthly open meetings.

We aim to have a varied programme at these meetings – some will have speakers, whilst others will be of a more social nature.

During refreshment time you can chat to other members, learn all about the organisation and find out about, and sign up to interest groups and other events.

A Newsletter is produced bi-monthly providing news on both local and national U3A issues and activities.

NB The AGM is for members only.

The annual subscription for membership is £17.50 for a single member and £30.00 for joint members ie members residing at the same address. The annual renewal date is December of each year. For new members wishing to join part-way through the year the subscription will be reduced. See membership application form for details.

Please use the TABS above or the LINKS on the right to access further information.

If you are interested in joining us please download a membership application form - you can be sure of a very warm Derbyshire Welcome.

If you can't join us because of mobility, Virtual U3A is a national online group.
