An introduction to the University of the Third Age movement

U3As are learning co-operatives of people who are retired, semi-retired or have finished raising their family, and there are no age limits. We have a general meeting each month where Various speakers give presentations on many and various subjects. There are also many interest groups which are run by the membership and have meeting on a monthly basis, to see the full range of current groups look at the "Groups" page and then click on any group to see the activities both past and future that the groups run each month
We draw upon the knowledge, experience and skills of the members to organise and run interest groups, in accordance with the wishes of the membership.

The U3A approach is learning and associating for sheer pleasure - there are no assessments to undertake or qualifications to be gained. Joining a U3A is a great way to meet people and make new friends.

The committee
An organisation such as this needs a
committee made up of people like you#. Do consider joining the friendly team working ‘behind the scenes’. You are more than welcome to come along to a Committee Meeting to see what goes on. For more information please contact any member of the committee.

NB - our Third Age Group is a voluntary organisation. We try to answer emails, phone calls or letters as soon as possible, but sometimes there may be a delay.

Final NB - please fill in the Gift Aid form when you join. It won't cost you anything but it will deprive the Chancellor of a few bob and will substantially enhance our coffers to benefit all our members.
