Welcome to Hailsham & District U3A

Welcome to Hailsham & District U3A providing educational, recreational and social activities for retired or semi-retired people in the area around Hailsham, East Sussex.

U3A stands for The University of the Third Age, it requires no qualifications and none are awarded. This is a self-help organisation where members share their knowledge and experience and if you are retired or semi retired you are eligible to join us. There is no minimum age.

Hailsham U3A was founded in March 2009. We currently have over 320 members and a wide-ranging selection of interest groups (click on GROUPS for further details). Our monthly Members' Meetings, with guest speaker, are held in the Civic Community Hall, Hailsham on the fourth Tuesday of every month, with doors open from 2.00pm for the serving of tea/coffee and biscuit, and programme starting at 2.30pm. These meetings are well attended with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and are free to members. Visitors to Members' meetings are very welcome and are asked to pay £2. Please click on EVENTS for further details of the monthly meetings.

The Hailsham U3A annual membership fee is currently £14. Membership fee gives the right to attend the monthly meetings and also any of the Interest Groups that have vacancies. It also, of course, gives the opportunity to form a group of a member's own choice and there is a Group Coordinator to help with this.

Members receive a Hailsham U3A monthly newsletter and also receive the National U3A Magazine every three months.
