How to Join the Plymouth U3A

New Members are always Welcome to the Plymouth U3A. We offer a wide range subjects for each of our 70+ groups.

If you are thinking of joining why not come along to our monthly general meeting as a visitor, so that you can find out what Plymouth U3A has to offer. Meetings are held at the Crowne Plaza on the 2nd Monday of the month at 10:00. There will be someone on the door to greet you and be of help.

Before joining please download and read our Aims and Guiding Principles and our Privacy Policy.

There are two ways to join Plymouth U3A: either apply to join online or complete an application form.

Join online

You can join on-line by clicking this link: Application to join the Plymouth U3A. (opens a new tab or window)  Payment can be made either via a Pay Pal account or you can select the option to make your payment by credit or debit card.  Please Note: New Members joining in March or April are charged the full fee but the fee is rolled over to include the whole of the next membership year. Please also see Gift Aid and Standing Order below.

Application Form

You can download the Membership Application Form then print it and complete the form.  Send it in the post along with your cheque to the address on the form.  Alternatively bring the completed form and your membership fee (cash or cheque) to the monthly meeting. You can also pick up an Application Form in person at our monthly meeting in the Crowne Plaza Hotel on the 2nd Monday of the month.

Gift Aid

As you may know, because the U3A is a registered charity, we are able to make a claim for Gift Aid from HMRC for any member who is a taxpayer, which equates to 25% of their membership payment.

Because our only source of income is our membership fees, being able to claim this revenue makes a big difference to our finances.

Therefore, if you are a UK taxpayer and you have not already done so, please could we ask that you complete and return the Gift Aid Form to us. (HMRC now advise that this can be sent to us electronically [by email]).

Standing Order

Please consider completing a Standing Order Mandate for future renewal of membership. Download the form: Standing Order Mandate Form.

Your membership completion includes your acceptance of our Privacy Statement.

Membership Card

Your new membership card will then be ready for your collection when you next visit us at the monthly meeting in the Crowne Plaza Hotel (2nd Monday of the month). Alternatively, you can send a stamped addressed envelope to our Membership Secretary, 45 Wilton Street, Millbridge, Plymouth  PL1 5LX.

Should you have any further queries please feel free to send an email to our .

Alternatively, you can contact any of our committee members via the Contact Form.
