No longer working full-time gives us back time to enjoy things we left behind, or the opportunity to try something new. Stay physically and mentally active! Meet new friends! Have some fun!

About Us

We are affiliated to the Third Age Trust and are an independent charity but part of a network of many u3as in the UK and the wider world. The u3a was created for and is run by "third agers", retired and semi-retired people. Across the UK, u3a members are learning, staying active and having fun in later life. It’s local, social, friendly, low-cost and open to all.

We are entirely run by volunteers. To see what the Third Age Trust has to offer, click on U3A National website.

Elmbridge U3A has over 1300 members to welcome you. We offer a wide range of opportunities for social contact and participation in interesting activities. Our motto is Learn, Laugh, Live. The pandemic has affected us but it has certainly not stopped us!
