Welcome to the Homepage of our new website.
U3A BROMLEY is a self-help organisation, one of over 1,200 independent U3As forming the Third Age Trust in the UK. It is a non profit-making Registered Charity which started in 1990 and offers all retired and semi-retired people a variety of opportunities to use their knowledge, skills and experience and to acquire new ones in an informal, friendly atmosphere.
U3A Bromley has more than 1700 members and many different interest groups. These interest groups are organised by the members for the members – each member making a contribution in keeping with their particular skills, abilities and knowledge.
Each local U3A is autonomous. Bromley arranges its own programme of study and recreational courses, visits, talks, travel, at home and abroad, social events and other activities.
Having a duty of care towards our members, the Executive Committee has decided that we should take steps ahead of any instruction from the government. Therefore most of our Open Meetings will be cancelled until the end of May, as follows:
- General Meetings – every 3rd Tuesday at Bromley URC
- Local Studies – every 1st Tuesday at Bromley URC
- Gardening – every 1st Wednesday at St Mark’s Westmoreland Road, Bromley
- Modern World – every 2nd and 4th Tuesday at the Central Library, Bromley
- Outings by Public Transport – various dates and locations
- Travel Group talks – 4th Friday March and April at the Central Library, Bromley
If you attend any of the Open Meetings and have friends and acquaintances without email who also attend, please pass this message on to them.
We will review the situation in May and keep members informed.
Members are advised to check with Group Leaders regarding other interest groups, as many, including those that meet in public buildings, will also be cancelled.
Annual General Meeting
The AGM, which was scheduled for Tue 21st April, is also postponed. When the AGM does take place, the reports and minutes will be unchanged, apart from the date, and therefore will still be relevant. If you intend to be there at the meeting, please retain the documents you have already been sent or emailed.
All Members of U3A Bromley receive an Interest Group Booklet containing details of all the U3A groups and activities and a Newsletter six times a year with news and updates.
Where we meet
Larger groups may hire a local hall with a small charge made to cover the cost and speakers expenses. Some of the larger groups are ‘Open Groups’ where members are welcome to attend without first referring to the contact. Smaller interest groups may meet in members’ homes. A booklet listing all groups and contacts is supplied to all new members. Please refer to the individual group entry under Open or Interest Groups.
