As the end of the year approaches, Lindsey u3a looks forward to lots of Christmas festivities. For some it will be a very busy time and for others it will be quieter and more peaceful.

Rest assured Lindsey u3a has lots of plans afoot. The list of speakers is complete for 2024; check it out at

Despite inflation, the group is pleased to announce the membership fee of £17.00 for the year will not change. Where else can you attend 12 monthly meetings, enjoy a cuppa and a biscuit followed by a speaker, plus the opportunity to join as many interest groups as you wish, all for £17.00? It’s a bargain!

The group meets at Welton Village Hall on the first Thursday of the month. Doors open for a cuppa and a biscuit at 9.45am followed by a speaker at 10.30am. First-time visitors are always welcome.

The next meeting will be on 7th December, when speaker Mark Walsh will entertain with his ukulele and stories of being on stage with Danny La Rue and ‘The Good Old Days’, when he ran the show at Leeds City Varieties Theatre.

The first speaker of 2024 will be Clive Wilson asking ‘What can WE do to save the planet?’ on 4th January. Clive is committed to the promotion of sustainable development that will leave the world a better place for the next generations. He believes that if we only do what we have always done we will only produce what we have already got, and this is evidently not good enough in many ways. Food for thought!

u3a offers a wide range of interest groups run by members for members, all visible on their website. u3a members can also join various online talks, workshops and courses. You can find out more from

If you can’t go to a general meeting you could join the, at the ‘Gardeners’ Retreat’ tearoom at Scothern Nurseries for a cuppa and a chat at 10.15am on the fourth Thursday of the month.
