Welcome to the Ashburton U3A Website

Welcome to the website of Ashburton University of the Third Age (U3A). The U3A is an opportunity for those people no longer in full time employment to share a variety of educational, creative and leisure activities.

There are a variety of interest groups from which to choose, each group is led by members with the relevant knowledge, experience or just enthusiasm for the subject. Subjects we cover vary from Book Group through to Family History, Armchair Travel, Crafts, Social History and Latin for Fun. See the full list of groups on the GROUPS page. The groups vary in size and determine their own content, when and where they meet and their own programme of events.

There is an annual subscription (lower than usual because of our reduced activities during the Covid crisis) of £5 per person (April 2021 - March 2022), to cover some of the running expenses, the hire of the rooms, the monthly speakers' fees and a contribution to the u3a Third Age Trust which includes insurance and a u3a News magazine.

Guests are welcome to attend up to two U3A activities or events at a charge of £2:00 per attendance. Future attendance will be possible only if visitors become members of the U3A.

To join simply go to the Contact page to download the current Membership Form, or come and join us at one of our monthly meetings - see Events.
