Want to enhance your life and make it more exciting!

Don’t hesitate, join today, and Learn, Laugh and Live!

Membership of the Ramsey & District U3A gives you the opportunity to Learn, Laugh and Live.

Primarily for retired and semi-retired people, or those no longer in full time employment, it is never too late to learn something new.

MEMBERSHIP

Annual membership is £15 per person (£11.50 if you already belong to another U3A).

Our year is from April to March and if you join from December the fee is £7.50.

On joining you will receive a membership card and welcome pack. You will also be invited to register with the Ramsey & District U3A website to enable you to access member pages. You must be a member before joining an interest group or attending courses.

Your annual subscription of £15 includes:

Per capita charge to National Office covering insurance, events, news click here to see illustration

Licences etc.

Subscription and postage for Third Age Matters, the National magazine published in February, April, June, September and November;

Fees for speakers at open meetings;

Ramsey’s own quarterly Aspire magazine

Regular Newsletters and updates as necessary

MENTORING

We are able to appoint Mentors for new members who will assist you in getting to know all about the U3A and introduce you to other members. They will explain what happens at the general meetings and help you to register on the website and facebook. They will talk you through the various interest groups and show you how to contact the group leaders. Contact the Membership Secretary if you would like a Mentor.

NAME BADGES

Name badges are issued to all members and everyone is requested to wear these at open meetings. On joining, a new members badge is coloured. This allows other members to easily identify new members and ensure they are made to feel welcome and encouraged to join in. When comfortable and/or on request, this badge can be switched to the normal white one.

Group Leaders have a green coloured name badge with details of the Group they lead so it is easy to spot the person you want to talk to.

MONTHLY OPEN MEETING FEE

Members pay £1 at each monthly meeting and Visitors £2.

RENEWAL

Subscriptions are due for renewal at the beginning of April and can be made by direct debit or payable at an Open Meeting or within the Interest Groups by cheque (made payable to Ramsey & District U3A) or cash. On receipt of payment a new membership card is issued for the following year.
