U3A hold the first ever Drop-in at Addingham
The first ever Addingham Drop-in session for Ilkley and District U3A took place on Friday 14th February at The Hub on Main Street.
This recently opened venue in the Old School above the library offers a flexible public space, free of charge, for group meetings including potential U3A interest groups.
Fifteen prospective U3A members called by between 10.30 and 12.00. They were greeted by U3A volunteers including three Trustees, offered free refreshments and then given useful information about the concept of the U3A and details of our local organisation and how to join.
All seemed very enthusiastic and went away clutching a welcome pack.
The U3A volunteers felt the event had been very worthwhile and would consider running it again in early summer.
