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. Break for Refreshments and a Chat
  3. Lostwithiel U3A Business Matters.

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 July 3rd 2017 at 2 pm in the Church Rooms Lostwithiel.

Kenneth Grahame

At this meeting we will start with a talk by Lynn Gould on Kenneth Grahame and his associations with Cornwall. Kenneth Grahame never actually lived in Cornwall, but he spent many holidays here and was married here. Fowey was his favourite location. He also visited St Ives (where he spent his honeymoon), the Lizard and Falmouth. It is claimed that Kenneth Grahame made a boat trip along the Fowey River to Lerryn with some friends and it became an inspiration for the first chapter of The Wind in the Willows where the Rat and the Mole make a boat trip along the river for a picnic.

After a break for refreshments there will be a discussion covering topics of interest to Lostwithiel U3A members.

Our general meetings in 2017 will be on the first Monday of the month in March, July, September and November. Our meeting in May meeting will be held on be held on 15th May, due to clashing with a Bank Holiday. Remaining Speakers booked to date are as following:-
