About Longridge U3A

Who We are

U3A Logo Longridge U3A was formed in April 2014 and now has over 160 members and 24 groups. We are a branch of the University of the Third Age Movement which nationally has over 300,000 members. We welcome retired and semi-retired people from Longridge and the surrounding villages who wish to meet together, not to gain qualifications but for the sheer joy of discovery as its own reward. The Groups page of this website lists our special interest groups which range from learning languages to circle dancing.
