Here are a selection of comments made by Burton Joyce & District u3a members about our u3a:-

  • “I have enjoyed so many u3a’s activities and made lots of new friends. The trips to the University have been most interesting and the Keukenhof trip was wonderful. The walks are very enjoyable and the Bridge and Canasta groups have been most informative, giving me new social skills The group leaders, and the group co-ordinator, must be congratulated on their hard work in organising the activities which are so much enjoyed by so many people. Being a member of BJDu3a is wonderful”.
  • “December Christmas Party Meeting: wonderful tear-jerking carols and Christmas songs singing from Burton Joyce Primary School choir!” “The most enjoyable times I have with the u3a are with the Table Tennis Group, as it is good exercise and really, really good fun, I love it!”
  • “I think the 10th Birthday Celebration said every thing about Burton Joyce and District u3a ,friendship, commitment, dedication and how lucky we are in Burton Joyce to have members at all levels willing to work to make it such a success. Thank you BJDu3a ; I feel privileged to be a member.”
  • “As I’ve only just joined BJDu3a as an Associate Member, I’m not able to comment on monthly meetings but or what I can see are the great activities organised for and by members. I would, however, like to comment that the New Members’ Meeting, which I attended recently, was a very well organised, welcoming and friendly affair with good information and pleasant conversation with Committee members and others. Thank you! I look forward to the coming year of membership
  • “As we are new to the area (and the u3a ) it has been a pleasure to meet new, friendly people as we enjoy lovely country walks to the pub. Very friendly and welcoming.”
  • ” “Meeting lots of new people, joining in aerobics, Pétanque, art visits, hearing interesting speakers and enjoying a range of visits. All this and more! Thanks to all who make it happen!”
  • “I have particularly enjoyed the friendship, help and goodwill from members of BJDu3a
  • “As a very new member I have not yet had time to join any of the groups but would like to comment on the arrangements for new members. I have been most impressed with the thought and care given to welcoming and the information provided. The size of the organisation and wonderful things on offer could be quite intimidating. A lot of thought has been given to making this as easy as possible. Well done.”
