All meetings will be held at the North Ferriby Social Club, 6 Low Street, North Ferriby HU14 3DD. Meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month and commence at 10.00am, unless otherwise notified. Individual arrangements are made for visits and these will be sent to members prior to the visit by eMail. Refreshments are provided at the meetings.
A fee of £20.00 for the year is charged to members to cover venue hire, refreshments and speaker's fees. u3a members and guests who attend occasionally will be expected to pay £3.00 per session as a visitor to the group.
Visits to nurseries/gardens may involve additional fees for refreshments / entry and in some cases booking is essential.
This is a popular group with 40 members registered. Unfortunately we feel that at the moment we cannot take on any newcomers.

We have had three successful meetings since reopening after lockdown and are looking forward to two more interesting talks. In April Paul Robinson gave us a talk on ‘Pests, Diseases and Poisonous Plants’ and in May Barbara Hickman will tell us about the Walled Garden at Helmsley. We then have two months with visits.
In June we will be revisiting Mires Beck Nursery, for anyone who hasn’t been this is definitely worth visiting. Following this in July we will be visiting two gardens in Selby which are part of the National Garden Scheme.
