Welcome to the Crickhowell U3A site
About Crickhowell U3A
Crickhowell U3A was founded in 2008 and has about 400 members. We have 31 Special Interest Groups and any member can join a group, as long as there are places available. Group meetings are held at different times and places – see the detailed information on each group by going to the Groups page. Prospective members may attend a group as a taster, but will have to join Crickhowell U3A to continue to participate.
We also hold a monthly meeting in the Clarence Hall, Crickhowell on the first Tuesday of every month at 10.00am for coffee with announcements/U3A business matters at 10.30am followed by a guest speaker. Details are on our Events page. Non-members are welcome to attend monthly meetings free of charge.
How much does it cost?
Membership is £15 per annum and includes five issues per year of the U3A house magazine “Third Age Matters” posted to your home.
How do I join?
To join, click on the membership form link to the right, print the form and post it to our Secretary. Or come to one of the monthly meetings and make yourself known at the entrance.
What is the U3A?
The University of the Third Age is a national and international network of self-regulating local associations. The national representative body for U3As is The Third Age Trust. Members are normally retired or semi-retired from paid employment. They co-operate to continue to pursue existing interests and explore new ones. No qualifications are required, and none given. There are no regular paid instructors. Interest groups set their own agendas, are self-financing and work at their own pace.
