Benefits of Membership

Membership of MHU3A provides the opportunity to further existing interests, discover new ones and, most importantly, to make new friends.

Alongside our regular activities, there are also outings and holidays throughout the year that are available to all members.

Monthly general meetings, with guest speakers on a variety of topics, provide an opportunity to catch up with others, find out what’s happening, enjoy a coffee or tea, and pick up the latest Monthly Newsletter (copies are also available at the Library, Cafe Nero, Blends and Quinn’s bookshop).

Members automatically belong to the national Third Age Trust, which entitles members to receive various discounts and other benefits, plus the Third Age Matters magazine.

Join us. And join in.

Building from Basics" - improve your Spanish 

A new group led by Liz (Watkin), an English teacher who lived in Barcelona for nearly 19 years, can be created to start in October. We need you to register your interest for this to proceed. A volunteer to be a joint leader would be very helpful to offer backup.  Although the time and venue have yet to be finally agreed, Wednesday or Thursday in the last week of the month are proposed. Contact Liz on to register your interest.

Forensic Psychology: Witness Investigation

The MOOC (massive open online course) group has so far followed courses on the First World War and Richard III. This is another MOOC from FutureLearn. It's free, an eight-week course requiring about three hours a week. See the FutureLearn website for details and to sign up click here. The course starts on 4 September.

The annual Group Leaders Lunch is at the Market Harborough Golf Club on 24 August. Gather at 12.30, for lunch at 1pm. We hope that all Group Leaders will be able to attend. Contact Tricia Storer, Groups Co-Ordinator.
