Open Meetings

Our monthly open meetings are free for everyone, both members and non-members. So, encourage your friends and neighbours to come along to hear a range of interesting talks on a wide variety of fascinating subjects. There is also the opportunity for informal chat over coffee about the latest Duns and District U3A group activities. For the 2019/20 season, these meetings will take place in the Volunteer Hall in Duns on the third Tuesday of every month.

Next meeting: Tuesday 19 November at 10am for 10.30. The speaker is Katty Baird, who will talk about “Moths in Dark Places – Searching for Hibernating Heralds in Scotland”.
