October 2021 : A Message from our Chairman

We are pleased to announce that classes have now commenced and we have places available on many of the courses. Please use our contact details to check on availability. Enrolling will be at the first session you attend. Details of the classes taking place can be found on the website or on the information leaflet (link) which is out in local libraries, town halls and other venues.
Please email thirdage@dewsbury-district3age.co.uk or phone 07842 284778 if you have any queries.

Arrangements have been put in hand to observe social distancing requirements and ensure the safety of members. Different venues have slightly different requirements which will be explained at the start of the class, but we have been working together to reduce any risk of transmission of the virus. Please see Member Guidelines after COVID .

In order to save time, it would be helpful if you could download the membership form and complete it prior to arrival, but if this is not possible, then printed copies will be available at the class.

IMPORTANT. The venue for the A3 Handicrafts and A16 Making Collector Teddy Bears is now Batley Community Centre (Upper Commercial Street, Batley).

We look forward to welcoming you.
