Are you a new member of Bridgwater U3A or thinking of joining?


If you would like to know more about us and are unable to get to the monthly coffee mornings come along to Bridgwater Library on Saturday, August 2nd 2.00 – 3.00pm.


This will be an informal ‘drop in’ session which we hope will become a regular event.


You will be able to talk to some of us and discover what we have to offer you and maybe what you can offer the U3A.


Just come along, or if you would like further information contact the Secretary on 01278 439385.


U3A Coffee Mornings


These are held on the third Wednesday of every month at the Masonic Hall, Northgate, Bridgwater, (opposite the Police Station), from 10 am to noon.


All members and those interested in finding out more about the U3A are welcome. There is usually a Bring and Buy Stall and the notice boards give up-to-date details of group activities.
