Welcome to the Silhill U3A website and especially to those new members who attended last week's Core meeting for the first time. I hope you enjoyed the experience and found plenty to interest you in the future. I am sorry I did not get to greet all of you in person but no doubt we will meet over the course of the next few meetings.

The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its U3As, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!

Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them.

The U3A movement is supported by its national organisation, the Third Age Trust.
