Lostwithiel U3A hold regular open meetings every two months. The meetings are held in the Church Rooms, Church Lane, Lostwithiel starting at 2pm. The meetings are divided into three parts::

  1. Guest Speaker
  2. Lostwithiel U3A Business Matters.
  3. Refreshments and a Chat

The meetings give members the chance to chat to other people outside their interest groups, learn about current activities, and find out about any new groups being formed. General Meetings are ideal for new members to discover what is happening in Lostwithiel U3A.

Our next Open Meeting will take place on Monday 5th November 2018 at 2 pm in the Church Rooms Lostwithiel. We have a late change of speaker for this event, but we are delighted to be welcoming Rupert Kirkwood who will tell us of "The wild, watery world of the lone kayaker".

Rupert has clocked up about 20,000 miles in his kayak, paddling around the coast and rivers of SW England, taking photographs mainly of the superb wildlife - seals, sharks, sunfish, porpoises, puffins, peregrines, whales, turtles and otters, to name but a few.
