Welcome to the Silhill U3A website.

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.

Chairman's Message - July 2016:

At this month's Core meeting we said a sad goodbye to Barrie Hammil who is moving to Devon. Barrie has been a stalwart of our Group, always there to lend a helping hand when needed and always with a smile and a chuckle over something. We wish him and his family all the best for the future and hope that he will drop in and see us at some time.

The Committee also said hello to Sandra Thursfield as our new Membership Secretary, Jackie Pardoe as Assistant Membership Secretary and Anne Badger as Vice Chairman, who were all voted into their new positions on the Committee, which I am glad to report is now complete. Thank you Anne B for looking after our membership lists so competently for the last few years and thanks also go to Derek Giles for standing in as Vice Chairman for the last few months.
