Great Oakley & District U3A started up in May 2013 and is still relatively small with about 165 members and nineteen interest groups, but with more on the way. Our main meetings are held at Great Oakley Village Hall, Corby, starting at 2pm on the fourth Monday of the month (or previous Monday if this is a Bank Holiday). There is an annual membership fee of £15 (2018-19} for new members £10 for renewals with a reduction of £2.00 if members do not want the national U3A magazine, that is available on the web, delivered to them. This includes refreshment at the monthly general meeting.
The interest groups meet in various smaller venues around Corby and there is usually a small charge at each group meeting to cover the cost of the hall/refreshments depending on where they meet.
The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is for people who have ceased full time employment and family committments, to enable them to come together in a relaxed and happy atmosphere, meet new people, learn and share old and new skills and experiences, and make new friends and acquaintances.
The U3A movement is supported by its national organisation, the Third Age Trust. Click on the U3A button in the menu for more information.
