Because Mill Hill U3A membership has grown faster than our ability to provide for members’ interests, for the time being new applications will only be accepted from persons living in NW7. Please attach a copy of a utility bill or bank statement in your name as proof that you live at an NW7 postcode. Applicants from any otherpostcode will be placed on a waiting list and informed when we are able to accept them.
Membership of Mill Hill U3A runs from 1st April to 31st March the following year and costs £18.00. However the fee payable is on a sliding scale depending on the month of joining. Please print and complete the application form (see link below on the left), and send it to the address on the form. Don't forget to include a Stamped Addressed Envelope to enable us to post the membership card to you.
If you cannot print the membership application form, use the contact form below to ask us to contact you.
- Attendance at our monthly meetings

The annual subscription covers the cost of room hire for our monthly meetings and the general running of Mill Hill U3A. The only additional charge is likely to be any expenses incurred by the specific interest groups you decide to join.
Everyone involved with running Mill Hill U3A is a volunteer, giving freely of their time and skills for the enjoyment of all its members.
Notes on completing the application form
This form may be used for either new applications or renewal of current membership. If you can, please print the form on both sides of the paper, because if it is printed on two pages we have to copy page 2 onto the back of page 1.
Please complete all relevant sections, especially the areas highlighted in yellow. If you leave any sections blank we will only have to send the form back to you for completion. Last year about 25% of membership forms were received with one or more incomplete sections.
If you claim a reduction from the full membership fee, please make certain that you enclose a photocopy of proof of your current entitlement to the reduction. Last year about 15% of those claiming a reduction had to wait for membership until they could be persuaded to send us proof of entitlement.
Please do answer the Gift Aid question, even if the answer is NO! If you pay Income Tax on a sum equal to at least the subscription amount, and you answer YES, we can reclaim the tax on that amount to help keep our subscription rates down and it costs you absolutely nothing! In fact, if you are a higher rate taxpayer, it benefits you as well because you can claim back the higher rate tax. Last year more than 5% of members failed to answer the Gift Aid question at all.
If you wish your new Membership Card to be posted to you please enclose a Stamped Addressed Envelope. If you do not, your new card will be retained for you to collect at the next Monthly Speaker’s Meeting that you attend. Last year about 10% of members failed to send an SAE.
If you find that you are unable to print the two pages of this form the right way up on both sides of a single sheet of paper, PLEASE DO NOT print the second page on a second sheet of paper. (Especially do not attempt to stick the two sheets of paper together with dollops of bluetack, or Sellotape them together all the way round, or staple them together). Just send a completed first page.
