Our charity status

Pocklington & District U3A is a registered charity run by a voluntary Committee of Trustees, elected annually at the AGM.

Our activities

The core of activities is provided through interest groups that meet in hired rooms, members’ homes or out of doors. These groups run on a self-help basis and are led by members. An annual Information Booklet provides members with details of all the groups and their activities.

Learn more about what we do

Up to date information is obtained by contacting the Group Leaders or at the monthly Drop-in meetings held on the first Thursday of the month at The Community Centre, Burnby Hall, Pocklington, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Here, members and prospective members can come along for a coffee and a chat and get the latest information about events and activities.

  • Anyone who is interested in starting a group should contact The Secretary or any member of the Committee Click Here for "Committee" page.

Subscription

The annual subscription, which is due on 1st April, is currently £10.00 and includes a contribution to the national organisation which covers insurance for activities and a quarterly national magazine. The subscription also funds local costs such as Drop-ins, the Information Booklets and some items for use by groups. All members are issued with a membership card which they need to produce from time to time when attending groups and which gives entry to Drop-ins.  New members are invited to a welcome meeting that enables them to meet members of the Committee, along with other new members, and to ask any questions they may have about the organisation and its many activities.
