U3A is open to anyone who is retired or semi-retired and presents an ideal opportunity to meet others and share knowledge and experiences through Open meetings/coffee mornings or by joining a Study Group where a smaller number of members share a common interest or activity. The range of subjects covered by the Study Groups is extensive - just take a look at them here.
The Knole U3A subscription year is July to June and people may join in at any time during the year. Knole sees itself as lively and friendly and is a popular U3A. Members are encouraged to contribute some of their energy and skills so we can continue to support a good variety of study groups and activities. Members prefer to limit the rate of growth of some of these Groups so people get to know each other and you may have to wait a few months before you can join a particular Study Group. However there are some open events you can attend during this time as a prospective member or simply to see if Knole is the U3A for you.
The annual membership fee for Knole U3A is £16, payable by cheque. This entitles you to join Study Groups, attend Open Meetings and coffee mornings and gives access to outings and seminars arranged by local groups and the national organisation. Some Study Groups may charge for refreshments, hall hire and consumables.
When you join you will be invited to attend a coffee morning to meet other new members and some of the Committee and learn how Knole U3A works.
