u3a Day

National u3a Day - 2nd June 2021

The u3a movement celebrated all that u3a stands for while raising awareness of our activities with the first National u3a day on Wednesday 2nd June 2021.

Crawley u3a celebrated with an action packed day in and around the Bandstand in Queens Square including:

Ukulele performance
Guided walk around historic Crawley
Folk singing
Crawley Quiz

We had many enquiries from potential new members and the day provided a great opportunity for our existing members to meet up with friends they'd only seen on Zoom, or not at all, for the last 15 months

This is planned to be an annual event, which will take place in Volunteer Week on the first Wednesday in June, showcasing the amazing and diverse things that our members get up to and challenge preconceptions of what being an older adult means.
