Events

Heswall Hall is our excellent community hall in the heart of Heswall, and most large events take place here.

As a member you can attend our Member Information Sessions, Short Courses and our Speaker events: 

  • On the second Monday of the month, excluding August and December, from 9:30 to 11:30, we have a drop-in session for existing members to find out about group vacancies and gain assistance to start new Interest Groups. In these uncertain times we can no longer run the previous “crush” meetings with 200+ present as we must ensure space and ventilation.
  • People considering joining should come along to these meetings arriving between 9:40 and 11:00, then we can further brief you about Heswall U3A, explain the enrolment process and answer any questions you may have.
  • SHORT COURSES – these are usually a one-off session on a variety of topics for circa 30 pre-booked members. See Newsletter for booking details.
  • On the 4thMonday of each month, excluding August and December, there is a Speaker meeting. The speaker starts at 10:30 and the usual cost is £1. Tea & coffee is available from 9:30 to 10:20 for an additional £1. This gives time to chat with friends both before and after the speaker, the room has to be clear by noon. We consider making a nominal charge for the Speaker Events a fair way to minimise the annual subscription as not all members choose to attend these events. Pre-registration required, see below.

PLEASE NOTE Windows will be open to create maximum ventilation so dress accordingly.

SPEAKER MEETINGS PLANNED SCHEDULE

Our Speaker Meetings are member-only. As 190 is currently the maximum seating number and we have over 700 members, we need members to register their wish to attend by responding to the Newsletter request in the requested time-band. One of our members then collates attendee names ready for scanning in at the meeting. Without pre-registering there may not be space for you.

If it is a digital meeting, members wishing to receive the log-in information should respond to the e-mail invitation which is sent out to all members in advance.

If you are not a member and would like to attend these meetings, please email our Membership Secretary on heswallu3a.memsec@icloud.com about joining our U3A.
