An Introduction to Slough U3A
(Updated 06 June 2022)
Slough U3A is a co-operative of older people, generally who are fully or partly retired. Our members enjoy and share educational, creative and leisure activities. We are proud to be a dynamic group; we have built up a range of activities and groups enabling our members to learn new things and enjoy active retired life.
We welcome new members.
COVID-19 has meant that many of our groups have been meeting online over the last year. With restrictions now easing, we are able to meet indoors, although we are continuing to be cautious.
Here’s a list of active groups: –
Activity Club (Table Tennis, Scrabble, Bridge), Art Appreciation, Badminton, Book Club, Bridge for fun, Create & Craft, Current Affairs, Drawing, French, German, Local History, Lunch Club, Outings, Play Reading, Poetry in Action, Practical Philosophy, Social Scrabble, Ukulele, Walking

We’re keen to start up new activities if there is sufficient interest.
As ever, we welcome any retired or semi-retired person who wishes to join any of our activities. For more information, please email info@sloughU3A.com or use the Contact Form on the website.
Membership of Slough U3A is currently £15 per annum (individual), £30 for a couple. If you join now, membership is valid until 31 August 2023.
Subscription monies are used to pay for meeting costs, subscription to our quarterly magazine “Third Age Matters”, insurance etc.

Our General Meeting takes place once a month, usually in St Andrew’s Church in central Slough. This is open to guests and non-members.
Each meeting starts with a speaker who will address us for 30 to 40 minutes on a topic of general interest. After this, refreshments are served and there is an opportunity for newcomers to find out more about our activities, to meet some of our members, to join if you are interested.
