Ashbourne & District


Ashbourne and District U3A has over 370 members and around 24 different interest groups from Art Appreciation to Writing my Life Story. If you are not already a member and live in the Ashbourne area why not come along to one of our monthly meetings to get started!

Monthly meetings
The Monthly Meetings are for all current members and those who want to find out more.
Meetings are held at the Waterside Centre, Waterside Park, Ashbourne DE6 1DG on the 1st Friday of the month starting at 2.30pm.

Click Events to see details of these meetings and a range of other activities.

At the meeting, rather than Group Leaders making announcements, we have notice boards for each group where they will display news and information about their activities. Please look out for them.
