October 27 Quiz Night
December 8 Manchester Christmas Markets


New organisers needed!

Have you ever been on a trip with Sheffield U3A Weekenders group and thought “I would like to help organise events like this”? The Weekenders’ team has been doing just that for quite a while and we are all hoping to retire from the job some time in the future.

We are now looking for some enthusiastic members to replace us. No experience is necessary, and don’t worry – we won’t throw you into the deep end. The job isn’t arduous; it entails organising a couple of trips or events a year.

Over the past nine years the Weekenders group has enjoyed quiz nights, guided walks and meals out and day trips to the seaside, stately homes, the theatre and many other places.

If you would like to help us or to find out more, please contact any member of the Weekenders team:
