Do you live in the West Lindsey area? No longer in full time employment?

Are you looking for ways to keep your mind and body active as well as make new friends and have some fun? Then look no further!

Lindsey u3a offers various interest groups plus a general meeting with a speaker every first Thursday of the month – tea and coffee at 9.45am in Welton Village Hall followed by a speaker at 10.30am. All of this for an annual fee of £17.00.

Make the most of life once you’re no longer in full time work by exploring new ideas, skills and interests with your local u3a.

If you decide to go along for a look, tell someone on reception you are new and a friendly greeter will show you round and answer any questions.

On 1st February the speaker will be Tom Lane, well-known local folk personality on Radio Lincolnshire and now on Lincoln City Radio. Also at the meeting will be folk singing duo Nigel and Teri with their presentation ‘Re-imagining Lincolnshire’, which was first performed for a Heritage Lincolnshire Day.

The Annual General Meeting will be held on 7th March followed by a talk by Diane Grimshaw entitled ‘Being Joyce Grenfell’, which should be very entertaining.

Lindsey u3a offers a wide range of interest groups run by members for members. Visit to see if anything appeals to you.

u3a members can also join various online talks, workshops and courses. Find out more from

If you can’t go to a general meeting, you could join the group at the ‘Gardeners’ Retreat’ tearoom at Scothern Nurseries for a cuppa and a chat at 10.15am on the fourth Thursday of the month. The next coffee morning will take place on 22nd February.
