U3A Spelthorne

Location and membership: A borough in Surrey to the west of London, bordering on Heathrow airport, Spelthorne U3A celebrated its 20th birthday in 2017. We include the towns of Ashford, Staines, Sunbury and Shepperton and have around 500 members.

Our Activities & Plans: At present there are 60 groups ranging from American square dancing to Writing for pleasure, including Poetry and Science and technology. Some of these are held in members homes , others in local halls if numbers are larger. We encourage members to start new groups if their interest is not already covered. The Social club organises day trips, holidays and social events such as a Quiz night and Barn dance, which are popular with many members.

Personal Comment: We produce a regular newsletter and have monthly general meetings usually with a speaker. We welcome visitors to these meetings and potential new members.
