Welcome to the Silhill U3A website.

The Committee and I would like to thank everyone who helped to put together such a wonderful 5th Anniversary Celebration Barn Dance on Saturday 19th November. Great fun was had by everyone and the band and caller were excellent. Thanks also to everyone who brought a contribution to the fabulous buffet. My foot is almost back to its original size but I can't say that about the colour! Blue and yellow with a black 'go faster' strip down the side just about explains it, but I am up and around and walking normally (almost!).

Thanks again to you all.


As mentioned at this month's Core Meeting, we are looking for a few members to give some 10-15 minute talks at the January meeting which can be on any subject in which you are interested. You may remember that at an earlier meeting this year several members requested more in house speakers and this is now the chance! If you would like to help us out, please contact me or Rebecca Jackson our Speaker Secretary (you can do this through the contacts page on this site).

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.
