How to Join
These are instructions on how to join Harrow u3a.
For membership renewal for 2020-2021 please click Renewing
Join Harrow U3A any time in the summer (1/6/21 to 30/9/21) and you get the summer for free; up to 16 months for the price of 12!
So rather than join U3A just for the last 4-month term, if you enrol with Harrow U3A for the following year as well, you just pay the standard fee for October 2021 to September 2022.
The subscription rates are:

Joint (2 at same address) £70
Person in receipt of Pension Credit £12

The u3a is open to all persons who are no longer in full time employment. The U3A motto is simply “Learn, Laugh, Live”
What does it cost?

FILL OUT FORM
3. Pay the appropriate fee by bank transfer using these details:
Name of account: Harrow U3A
Sort code: 40-36-21
Account number: 01518518
Please quote as a reference your phone number followed by (up to) the first 5 letters of your surname.
4. Email the Membership Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to say you have applied to join.
(This last is not essential but means we will look out for your form and respond quicker.)
If you cannot pay via bank transfer (or you don’t have a friend or relative who can do this for you) it is also possible (though our response may be rather slower) to pay by cheque.
Please post your cheque, payable to Harrow U3A, to:
HU3A Membership Team, 7 Ventnor Avenue, Stanmore, HA7 2HX
Please write your name on the back of your cheque and include a note with your email address or phone number so we can contact you.
If you have not filled in our membership form online, it is also possible to do so by printing this form:
NEW MEMBER FORM.
Send the completed form to the membership team, address above, ideally along with the Gift Aid form below.
We will send you your membership card, the latest newsletter and other information. You will then be free to contact any of the Study Group leaders. You will also be invited to join our email news list, for breaking news about what’s on.
What is Gift Aid?
Harrow U3A is a registered charity (number 1009872). So, if you pay Income or Capital Gains Tax (which may be deducted at source) we are able to claim a refund from HMRC. It does not cost you anything, nor does it complicate your finances in any way, and it helps us keep our subscription rate as low as possible. If you want to sign up for this, you can on the on-line form, but again you could print and complete this form: GIFT AID FORM.
If you are thinking of joining Harrow U3A and need further information, please telephone Sheilah Lowe, our Enquiries Officer, on 020 8861 3821.
Our Membership Team deals with the actual registration of new members and queries from existing members. They also handle new member enquiries in the absence of the Enquiries Officer. You can email them at email@example.com or phone Howard on: 07908 533317.
