U3A Ellesmere is a University of the Third Age branch in Canterbury, New Zealand. We meet in the Bayliss Room at the Lincoln Events Centre, Meijer Drive, Lincoln on the fourth Wednesday starting at 10am.

January 2023

There will be a meeting in January, on Wednesday 25th.

 We are fortunate the quality of our speakers adds to the value that we all get from being a member at U3A Ellesmere.

With regard to mask wearing, it is now up to each individual as to whether they wish to wear one or not.

Our membership has been capped at 230 for the past two years. Attendance at most meetings is between 100 and 120. The Bayliss lounge is licenced for 200 so it is just like the airlines. A problem occurs only if all those booked turn up. At our AGM we can consider if we increase the cap for members as we know there are additional Ellesmere folk who would like to join.

We have several interest groups and more will come with demand and willing helpers. These are based on members’ interests and the availability of leaders for those groups. See current interest groups here.

Programme for last year.
