About Slough U3A

(Updated on 2 Feb 2020)

Slough U3A is a co-operative of older people, generally who are fully or part 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. New activities are starting all the time.

We welcome new members.

General Meetings

We have a general meeting once per month in central Slough. 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 and to sign up if you are interested.

The meetings at St Andrews’s Church Hall Merton Road, Slough SL1 1QW usually take place on the third Wednesday of each month, at 2 pm. Click on Meetings for more information.
