The Palmer Hall 100 Club

The Palmer Hall 100 Club started in 2003 and now has 164 members. The Palmer Hall Committee gives £950 in prizes through monthly draws with 9 prizes each month ranging from £5 to £25. In this special year, the Palmer Hall Committee would like to have a membership of 200 people and re-name the club the “200 Club”. To achieve this, the Committee would like all established subscribers to renew their subscription and would welcome new members.

For a subscription of £12 per year, you will be allocated a number, which will be entered into each monthly draw. 50% of the subscriptions are given back in prizes, with the remainder going into the Hall’s funds for maintenance and improvement of facilities. If you would like to support us by subscribing the equivalent of 24p per week, please contact Louise Hatch on 01285 711657 or Suzie Crowley on 01285 712189.



Fairford & District U3A is a friendly, lively association, open to anyone over 50 who is not in full-time employment. University is used in its original sense of a group of people coming together to learn. We enjoy working, playing and learning together for fun, not for qualifications. We have one monthly, general meeting in the Palmer Hall, Fairford, at which we have an outside speaker; the rest of the time we meet in interest groups, invariably in the day-time, which are organised by members and which can be broadly divided into the three categories of: Study, Crafts and Hobbies, Physical Activity.

The Third Age Trust is the national representative body for U3As in the UK. The individual U3As are self-help, self-managed co-operatives and are basically autonomous. The Fairford and District U3A has been running since 1984 and our membership is just over 300. If you are interested, take a look at our website:
