East Grinstead

Welcome to East Grinstead u3a!


u3as are open to all people no longer in full time employment. We give them opportunities to keep active, to meet like-minded people and to continue to use and develop their knowledge and skills. We pursue learning not for qualifications, but for enjoyment. Activities are organised by the members. Sources of information on which members may base their contributions might include the Internet, Public Libraries, East Grinstead Museum
