The U3A is a "self-help, self-managed community co-operative" dedicated to lifelong learning for those of us in our Third Age. We define the Third Age as the period after the First Age of childhood dependences, and the Second Age of full- time employment and parenthood . It follows that there is no lower or upper limit on the age at which you can join U3A .

We aim to provide opportunities to get together for enjoyment and entertainment and to share learning experiences in a wide range of specific-interest groups.

We have a monthly meeting with a speaker, and refreshments, open to all members, and we organise outings to places of general interest. We pursue learning and new experiences; not for qualification, but for fun, using the personal experience of our members

We are one of the biggest U3A’s in Norfolk with over 500 members and 33 groups. The U3A initiative in Britain has 1050 U3A’s and 440,000 members. Each U3A is autonomous but follows the U3A ethos.

Members also enjoy a monthly e-newsletter free of charge, and regular updates between meetings by e mail and this web-site.
