Welcome to the Knutsford and District ‘University of the Third Age’ Website.

Now that most of us have had two vaccinations and with the continuing easing of restrictions our u3a activities are slowly restarting. While this is clearly good news I would encourage all group leaders and event organisers to remember that some members may be initially hesitant about physically meeting many people, even with social distancing. It is important that options for independent travel to activity locations are available in addition to car sharing or coach travel.

Thank you to all of those who have renewed their membership. Over 60% of those who have renewed used the new electronic systems accessible via this website, greatly reducing the work load of our membership secretary. Anyone who hasn’t already renewed please do so today either via the Membership page or by using the form included in Kanuta.

We are hoping to resume our monthly Membership Meetings at Knutsford Methodist Church from September. In the meantime we are still offering regular Zoom talks to our members as listed here.

For more information on using Zoom please click here
