About Lichfield u3a
Lichfield u3a was formed in 1994, and now has over 600 members and 60 groups. Our groups are listed on the Groups page. Most meet in the daytime, and you can join as many as you like! If you have a particular hobby or interest that you wish to share, please let us know, and with your help, we will try to accommodate it.
Participation is a key word for membership; whether it's helping with refreshments, sharing the organisation of a group, or serving on our committee, there's a job for everyone. Groups meet in members’ homes and venues in and around the city.
