So how do you become a member?
Simply come along to one of our Monthly Meetings at Turner Hall, on the 2nd Thursday of the month, at 9.45am. You will be met at the door by one of our members, who has volunteered to be a ‘Greeter’, and introduced to other members.
As a visitor you can attend the meeting for free, and you will hear all about the latest events and activities, have refreshments and be entertained by that month’s speaker.
You can be a visitor for 2 months and during that time you can come to the monthly meetings and try out any of our Interest Groups once (subject to places being available). After this you should have decided whether or not you want to become a member. Your details will then be added to a list of people awaiting membership and you will be contacted when a place is available. At this point you can decide if you wish to become a Postal Member until a place for full Membership becomes available. Being a Postal Member means that you can take part in Interest Groups, Social Events, and Visits. You will receive a Newsletter either by email or by post containing updates about all the activities which are being planned. The only thing you cannot do is attend the Monthly Members’ Meeting due to the restricted capacity at Turner Hall.
We pay £21 for a year’s subscription and our year goes from April to March. You will be given a Membership Card, which not only gives you admission to our U3A but also enables you to join interest groups in the North Notts Neighbourhood Group of U3As if there are vacancies.
Currently membership is the same cost for full and postal membership in order to cover the cost of the additional postage required for the latter group and to make the transition from postal membership to full membership easier. Current membership is £21 per calendar year or pro rata. £4 of the subscription is paid to the Third Age Trust which gives us insurance cover for all our activities so you are fully protected. The other £17 goes to Sherwood U3A to pay for the hire of meeting premises, refreshments, speakers, newsletter publication and variety of functions eg coffee mornings and special events.
