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 - June 2016:

Summer seems to be here at last (fingers crossed!) and I hope that you are all enjoying the lovely weather.

Our Core meeting speaker, Ken Mullins, gave us the history of his involvement in the Duke of Edinburgh scheme but was only able to scratch the surface of his 60 years with the Scheme.

The online calendar has now been superseded by an option on the website to view the diary dates in Group or chronological order. There is a tab at the top right hand side of the list which changes the view from one to the other and these can be printed out.
