Malvern u3a currently has around 1500 members and over one hundred different groups ranging from cultural pursuits to physical activities. As we tentatively emerge from lockdown, we hope that we will be able to move towards a more normal year where groups will be able to meet face to face where appropriate. Clearly, it will be up to every group to decide amongst themselves how quickly they transition to normality. You will be receiving a Groups Directory through the post which will include as much information as possible. However, due to the uncertainty around when the Directory was prepared, it is recommended that you contact your group leader/contact to find out the latest situation.The Trustees have set the annual membership fee at £15, the same as the 2020-21 year, despite an increase in National u3a capitation rates. If you are finding the cost of membership a problem and are in receipt of benefits, then part of your membership fee may be waived. Please contact the Membership Secretary for advice. The individual charge for members attending groups in external venues has increased to £2 per meeting from January 2022.
