Our principal methods of communication with members are emails, the newsletter issued four times a year, general meeting announcements, messages via group contacts and this website.

Please do take note of all emails you receive from us and download the newsletter to keep up to date with important announcements, including subscription renewals.

For security purposes, all general emails to members are sent bcc (blind carbon copy) so no circulation list will appear at the top. 

Members who are not online receive a printed copy of the newsletter four times a year.

Please do ensure that the contact details we hold for you are up-to-date. If you change your email address or any other contact details, please notify the Membership Secretary.

Please also ensure that we have up-to-date Emergency Contact details for you, so that we know who to get in touch with in the event that you experience an accident or medical problem while taking part in any u3a activity.

Group Contacts are reminded that New Member Packs for any new members who join their Group are available from the Membership Secretary.

A number of members have volunteered to give lifts to Normanton on Soar Village Hall to those who do not have their own transport and would like to attend General Meetings.

Anyone requiring a lift should first contact the Chairman, who will provide a contact telephone number for transport from one of the following areas.

  • Loughborough
  • Shepshed
  • East Leake
  • Sutton Bonington

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a u3a provided transport service, nor should it be treated as a "paid for" taxi service. Places are limited, according to availability of volunteers.
