New members are always welcome. No qualifications are necessary. Our current annual subscription of £12.00 entitles members to join any U3A in Kennet interest group; the membership year runs from 1st August to 31st July. There is also a £3.00 Joining Fee. Note: a reduced Membership fee of £6.00 applies for those joining after 1st May until the end of the membership year.
Groups are listed on the Interest Groups page. Please note that some groups may make a small charge to provide coffee and tea and others make charges to cover external costs.
All members receive the Annual Yearbook, our monthly eBulletin Newsletter (sent by email), and Third Age Matters, the printed magazine newsletter from the U3A national organisation.
Members are encouraged to share their experience and knowledge and it’s easy to start a new Interest Group if your particular passion or enthusiasm is not catered for already.
If you are interested in joining please review the Terms and Conditions of Membership and complete an Application Form, and pay the Annual Membership and Joining Fees.
