Open Meeting in Church Rooms Lostwithiel

Lostwithiel U3A hold regular open meetings every two months. The meetings are held in the Church Rooms, Church Lane, Lostwithiel starting at 2pm. The meetings are divided into three parts::

  1. Guest Speaker

The meetings give members the chance to chat to other people outside their interest groups, learn about current activities, and find out about any new groups being formed. General Meetings are ideal for new members to discover what is happening in Lostwithiel U3A.

Our next general meeting, which will include our AGM will be on 21st May featuring Ruth and Brian Stevens talking about BBC Radio
