Welcome to the Website of Burton Joyce and District u3a. I’m Alwyn the current Chairman and I'm looking forward to meeting you.
We are one of over 1,000 similar organisations in the UK, part of the “University of the Third Age” worldwide network dedicated to “Life-Long Learning” for retired and semi-retired people. We are run by volunteers and we can only ever offer what our members are prepared to give. But I think you will be pleasantly surprised at just how much that is. Come along to one of our monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of each month to see if we appeal. The venue is Burton Joyce Village Hall and we start at 1.45pm.
The beauty of u3a is that you can be as involved as little or as much you want to be, but like everything in life, the more you put in the more you get out. We currently have over 70 individual interest groups, so there is bound to be something to take your fancy. If not, though, you can always start one yourself. It’s that easy.
I hope this website gives you a flavour of who we are, where we meet, what we do and it encourages you to to give us a try.
