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.

March 2023

There will two meetings in March on Wednesday 22nd and 29th

 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 we can consider if we increase the cap for members as we know there are additional Ellesmere folk who would like to join.

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.
