Welcome - Live Life to the Full

We are an inclusive organisation and welcome a diverse range of people. No longer working full-time gives us back time to enjoy things we left behind when life took over, or the opportunity to try something new. Stay physically and mentally active! Meet new friends! Have some fun!

u3a is a volunteer-led organisation for people who are no longer working full-time. We offer the chance to pursue a diverse range of activities at very little cost in a social environment.

We favour face to face meetings, but also use a range of on-line solutions to help us share our interests and keep us involved and in touch with each other.
