A U3A is a self-managed lifelong learning co-operative of older people who are no longer in full time employment. It enables members to share many educational, creative, cultural and leisure activities. Members with like-minded interests and enthusiasms meet regularly in each other's homes, or in local hired venues. Through sharing knowledge, skills and experience, members learn from each other. Crowborough U3A was founded in 2006. Currently we have 808 members with 84 enthusiastic interest and activity groups meeting monthly, fortnightly and some weekly, in the homes of members, or in hired venues. To see more details of what is on offer, go to the GROUPS page. But please note that you must join Crowborough U3A, pay your subscription and receive your membership card, before you can attend any group meetings.
We have a Monthly General Meeting on the third Wednesday of the month with a special guest speaker, usually held in All Saint's Church Hall, Chapel Green, Crowborough, starting at 2.30 p.m. (doors open at 2). You will always find details of speakers on the Events page. The Membership Secretary is always present to welcome and enrol new members. Subscription for 2019 is just £12. A membership application form can be downloaded from the FORMS button if you wish to apply by post.
