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.


Annual membership is £17 per person (£13 if you already belong to another u3a).

Our year is from April to March and if you join from December the fee is £8.50 or £6.50 if you belong to another u3a.

On joining you will receive a welcome pack. You will also be given access to 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 £17 includes:

Per capita charge to National Office covering insurance, events, news licences etc.

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

Hire of venue for monthly meetings

Fees for speakers at open meetings;

Ramsey u3a’s own quarterly Aspire magazine

Regular Newsletters and updates as necessary


We have Welcomers who are at General Meetings to 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 to be a Welcomer.


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. Committee members have lanyards and are there to help you.


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


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 and District u3a) or cash.
