Long Eaton & District


Welcome to the Long Eaton & District U3A website.

We were established in 2007 and are part of a world-wide organisation dedicated to retired and semi-retired people who, after the completion of many years of employment, wish to continue to learn new interests in the company of others. We aim to encourage both study and leisure activities in a wide range of topics. U3As such as ours, draw on the knowledge, experience and skills of their members to organise and lead these various groups for the benefit of the membership.

To join any of the interest groups it is a requirement of the Third Age Trust that you first have to become a fully paid-up member of Long Eaton & District U3A otherwise you will not be covered by our Third Party insurance. Please click on MEMBERSHIP in CONTACTS to send an e-mail for more information.

Since we learn only for the pleasure of it, no qualifications are required to join and none are given.

At Long Eaton we have a range of Interest Groups plus a monthly Open Meeting, on the third Wednesday of the month at West Park Leisure Centre, where we can all meet together and enjoy an interesting speaker. Why not come along as a visitor to an Open Meeting to find out more about us, make friends and develop new interests?

Once a year we also have an Interest Group Fair when all members are invited to come along and meet informally with group leaders.
