BEVERLEY

... is an historic market town and the administrative capital of the East Riding of Yorkshire, its skyline is dominated by two magnificent mediaeval churches, Beverley Minster and St Mary’s Parish Church

BEVERLEY & DISTRICT u3a

... is part of an international network of people, who are not in full-time employment, who meet together to learn from each other and to share interests and fellowship. From small beginnings in 1999 we now have over 500 members, and many special interest groups. Annual membership currently costs £15.00.

... is a member of ‘The Humber Accord’ – the other groups who are members are based in Cottingham, Hessle, Pocklington, South and North Cave, Swanland, Hornsea, Hull and Howden and District, in East Yorkshire. The group AWAKE (drawing members from Anlaby, Willerby and Kirk Ella) is also a member of the Accord. Within agreed guidelines, members of one u3a within the Accord can take part in activities of another.

U3A

... the essence of the U3A educational philosophy is that members learn from each other and from direct experience, rather than being tutored by outside experts. Much of this learning takes place in the interest groups which are at the heart of any local U3A's activities. Members are always encouraged to start up new groups within their own areas of interest and expertise.

... we are members of the Third Age Trust, which is the parent body of all affiliated U3A branches. In this country there are now over 1000 U3A groups, with a total membership of around 320,000. Why not make it one more by joining us?
