About Slough U3A

(Updated 28 August 2020)

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.

As ever, we welcome any retired or semi-retired person who is interested in our activities. For more information, please email info@sloughU3A.com or use the Contact Form on the website.

Covid-19 Update – August 2020

We have the following groups running during the COVID crisis – some are using the internet, others are meeting outdoors to get together once or twice a month:

Art Appreciation, Book Club, Creative Writing, Current Affairs, Drawing, French, German, Local History, Pilates, Play Reading, Poetry in Action, Practical Philosophy, Ukulele, Walking

Click on Activity Groups to find out more about any of these activities.

The Walking group is strictly following social distancing rules during lockdown. Our Art Appreciation group has been unable to visit exhibitions and galleries since March, we are cautiously restarting visits as much as lockdown restrictions permit.

We’re keen to start up new activities if there is sufficient interest.

General Meetings

Prior to COVID-19, we had a general meeting once per month in central Slough; sadly these have been suspended for the time being.

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.
