Hull U3A – A Brief History
The first meeting of what was to become the Hull Group was held on 2nd September 1986 in the west of Hull.

As the Group became known, the membership grew enough to meet on Mondays and Tuesdays in a rented room from Hull City Council’s Adult Education Department in Park Street.

By 1988 there were enough members to have a separate venue in the east of the city too, renting a room at the Ings Adult Education Centre, Ings Road.

In those early years activities included computers, talks and slideshows of members’ holidays, visits to places of interest and acting one-act plays.

The east and west groups continued for 20 years until falling membership in the west and increasing room rental costs from Hull City Council lead to closure of the west group and the east group renting a room at Portobello Church on Holderness Road in 2007.
