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.

May 2023

The meetings in May will take place on Wednesday 24 May and 31 May.

 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 Baylis 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 it was voted to keep the number of members at 230.

Once again our membership has reached full capacity. If you would like to join U3A Ellesmere, we will put you on a waiting list until a position becomes available. Please do not pay a joining fee until you have been advised that your application has been accepted.

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.
