Cheadle U3A - The Almoner Post      
The Almoner post has been operative for some time now and you might like to have an update. This position was created so that any U3A members who are sick or have an accident or are bereaved can contact us or be contacted by phone or more usually by post. The committee feel that in these times just knowing that someone cares and is thinking of you can be of help. If you know of anyone to whom you think we should send a card please contact me.

Are you retired or semi-retired?  Do you know what Cheadle U3A has to offer? We are part of the Third Age Trust; a national charity organisation aimed specifically at our age group.  We were founded in 1997 and are now about a thousand strong with over fifty activities you can enjoy:
  • Outdoor activities
  • Indoor Sports
  • Dancing
  • Art groups
  • Craft groups
  • Language Classes
  • Computer Classes
  • Special interest groups such as Poetry, Architecture and Music
  • Social Events

It’s an organisation run by its members, for its members on a totally voluntary basis.  An elected Management Committee runs the administration and the Group Leaders pass on their skills with enthusiasm and commitment.

Is there something that is just what you’re looking for, if there is contact the Group Leader for more information (see the Groups/Activities web page).  Or you may have an interest you would like to share with others, in which case contact the Groups Co-ordinator –  Helen Wainwright

Annual Membership costs £10 and each group session attended costs £1.  The groups meet in and around Cheadle and members can belong to as many groups as they wish.

If you’re interested but would like to chat to someone before joining why not come along to one of our Coffee Mornings, held at the Guildhall on the second Wednesday of every month, except August.
