Bearsted & District


Welcome to Bearsted & District U3A

Welcome to Bearsted & District U3A. We held our first meeting in September 2013, and this year have over 200 members.

U3As are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning, not for qualifications, but for fun. This is done through the Special Interest Groups. These are are listed on the GROUPS page with links to a more detailed page for each group that shows dates, times, contacts and resources under the headings of What, Where, When and How to Join. When any group becomes full a new one is formed from from the waiting list.

We welcome everyone from Bearsted and surrounding parishes in Kent. If you would like further information please follow the link to our MEMBERSHIP page. If you would like a Membership Application Form or have a question about Bearsted & District U3A why not arrange to come along to one of our Monthly Meetings or please send an email using our CONTACT page. A Programme Leaflet can be obtained by clicking Programme Leaflet 2018-19 on the LINKS panel at the side of this page.
