Welcome to Cheadle Hulme u3a

Practical Art is a popular Group

Are you are no longer in full time employment or perhaps semi-retired and resident in the vicinity of Cheadle Hulme or Heald Green? Would you like to share your interests with others and form new friendships with like-minded, local people? If you answer ‘yes’ to any or all of these questions, then Cheadle Hulme u3a could be for you. We have a wide variety of Groups, from Practical Art to Languages, Technology to Dining Out, Local Theatre, various Walking Groups and many more. Some groups have no cost and others a small charge to cover expenses. Please see our Groups Page for more details. The annual membership fee for 2022 is just £12.

Cheadle Hulme u3a began In September 2001, after a meeting of Third-Agers in Cheadle Hulme met to discuss the formation of a new U3A branch and several volunteered their services as group leaders. The first newsletter was issued early in 2002 and, within a year, membership had grown to around 200. In October 2021 we celebrated our 20th anniversary.

At the core of our U3A activities is the monthly members’ meeting, which is usually  held at St. Andrew’s Church on Cheadle Road on the first Thursday of each month commencing at 2pm and serves as a valuable social function in bringing all the Groups together.

The monthly meeting provides an opportunity for the Committee and Group Leaders to make announcements and pass on information to members. The monthly meeting has also brought us guest speakers on a wide range of interesting subjects and normally includes refreshments. The cost to attend the monthly meeting is £1.
