New Member Application

Joining online is straightforward and uses the Beacon system (which is the u3a movement’s integrated membership and mailing system). You will be taken to their member joining page if you click the link below. Please review the following information first.


This scheme allows Fairford and District u3a, as a registered charity, to re-claim income and/or capital gains tax on the subscriptions paid by those members who pay either of these taxes. If you are eligible and feel able to, please tick the box on the online renewals application form (when you reach it) as it provides us with a significant increase to our income without affecting what you pay.


This magazine is included in your membership and is sent four times per year. The Third Age Trust is the national organisation to which all U3As are affiliated and they are responsible for its distribution. If you do not wish to provide them with your contact details you may opt out of receiving it by contacting the membership secretary at any time.


So that you can be kept informed about events and activities that are offered as part of your membership, we require you to provide some personal information, such as your local address and email address. You may also wish to register to use the Members Area of our webpages. In accordance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we have policies on Data Protection and Data Privacy, which are set out on our website here, and which provide information about how we store and use your personal information. You are required to accept these terms before joining or renewing your membership. Once accepted, you will be taken to the u3a member joining page.
