Do you work part-time? Retired? Then u3a could be for you. U3a is a nationwide network of learning groups aimed at encouraging older people to share their knowledge, skills and interests in a friendly environment. u3a is uniquely for older people, giving you the opportunity to meet and make new friends who share the same interests or lifestyle. If you have always wanted to learn a particular skill, or enjoy sharing your knowledge with others, u3a could be a good option for you. There is no lower age limit but the u3a is for people in their third age - retired or semi-retired.

Joining a u3a is a great way to find and develop new interests and make new friendships in a relaxed and fun making environment through our Interest Groups. We welcome new membership applications from anyone in their “third age”, which means anyone no longer in full-time employment; there are no age restrictions, and your subscription includes monthly meetings at the Village Hall for talks presented by guest speakers. These are held on the third Wednesday in every month at 2.00 p.m. for 2.30 p.m. Guests are welcome for a payment of £2.50. It is a great way to meet people and see what is going on and what groups there are.
