PUB LUNCHES

Pub lunches are one of our popular social activities, open to all members of Meopham U3A but unfortunately not to non-members. They are usually held on the fourth Friday of the month, arriving 12.30 for 13.00 - but do check the web site for the most up to date information.


N.B. This is NOT necessarily the last Friday of the month!

The actual cost varies according to the venue but the Pub Lunch organiser tries to keep costs as reasonable as possible.

You will have to pay the full cost of your lunch, in cash, when you book. The cost usually covers a two course meal & a tea/coffee but the Pub Lunch organiser will explain the deal & choices when you book. If you order any other drinks you will need to pay the venue for them on the day. Please note that any refunds are at the discretion of the venue & cannot be guaranteed, & kindly notify the Pub Lunch Organiser if you realise you will not be able to go to the meal so they have as much time as possible to contact the venue on your behalf.

Dee Jordan will normally be available to take bookings at Coffee Mornings & Monthly Members' Meetings.
For lunch dates see below or Events.
To e-mail Dee with any booking info or queries click the bluebird symbol.

The members say that these lunches have generally been remarkably good value & very pleasant. Our heartfelt thanks to Dee for organising them.

 

Hello, I said Hello....

Yes we are still open, Its about time for a change of attitude.... Things will be a long time getting back to the old normal so let's get busy being positive and planning for our continuing Meopham U3A future.
Group contacts have been emailed by Heather and me, (Gus) asking for information about your groups and your website page and if not much has happened PLEASE be courteous and at least reply  as it all helps us to understand how our U3A is coping.
Face to face meetings of any type are going to be difficult as we all have our own "Bubbles" to feel safe in but online group quizes, coffee mornings or just a phone call can be helpful for many who miss personal contact. 
Help is available and dont be scared to ask / email someone on committee who will point you in the right direction and for many try asking grandchildren for help, I do!!
As you can see from this list many of the groups are keeping the members informed of what is going on.
