The annual subscription, payable each September, covers affiliation fees to the national organisation, four national U3A Third Age Matters magazines (posted to members), and local expenses such as the cost of speakers and room rental for monthly meetings, and the publication of own monthly newsletter. The subscription (currently £15 for the full year) also entitles members to join as many study groups as they wish. Our monthly newsletter provides news and reports on our activities, full details of all the study groups and all members are encouraged to contribute to its production.

New members are always welcome and our numbers grow every month. Just come along to one of our monthly meetings which take place on the third Monday of each month (except August) at Shrewsbury's Theatre Severn. Our New Member Facilitator or Groups Administrator and our Membership Secretary will be in the seating area outside the entrance to the Walker Theatre from 9.45am onwards. They will provide you with all the information you want to know about the U3A in general and all our study groups. Prospective members are actively encouraged to attend a monthly meeting or a study group meeting before deciding whether to join.
