Existing Members – Membership Renewal Process

The Annual Membership (Renewal) Fee is currently £6

Our membership year commences on 1st of September and runs to 31st August, but you can renew your membership from the beginning of June and your membership will still run to 31st August the following year.

If we have your email address you will receive an email in June containing instructions that will enable you to renew using our secure online payment facility, otherwise you will receive a letter for postal renewal.

Alternatively you can click here : Sandbach U3A – Membership Account Details.  After logging-in you will see a “Renew Membership” link. Click on it and follow the instructions.

If you are not sure if you have already renewed you can check by using the above “Renew Membership” link. The system will advise you if you have already renewed and will not allow you to renew again for the same year.

The online process is very quick and will save you having to go to the Library or post a letter.

Renewing will preserve your current membership details on our system, and you will keep your current membership number and membership of all groups and social events you have joined. Please do not use the join form on the website as this will result in you having two separate accounts on our system.

Please contact the Membership Secretary (membership@sandbachu3a.org.uk) if you have any questions regarding your renewal. Please include your email address when you contact him, just in case the one we have is incorrect.

 If you would prefer not to pay online, you can make your payment (of £6) by one of the following methods:
(If you pay by cheque, please write your membership number or full name on the back of it.)

1 – Bring your cheque (payable to Sandbach & District u3a) or cash to the occasional u3a desk in Sandbach Library (See below).

2 – Post your cheque with a stamped addressed envelope (SAE) for the return of your membership card (if required) to:
Sandbach U3A Membership
c/o Sandbach Library
The Commons
CW11 1FJ

3 – To save postage you may drop your cheque into the box under the u3a noticeboard in Sandbach library. If you require a membership card please enclose a stamped addressed envelope (SAE).
