The first age is childhood
The second age is responsibilities
BUT THE THIRD AGE IS FREEDOM!
Let U3A membership add another dimension to your life. If you are retired or semi-retired you can take part in educational, creative and leisure activities in the company of others. No qualifications are needed and none are given.
The University of the Third Age was founded in 1982 and is a self-help organisation. Its groups come together to develop new skills and interests on a primarily social basis.
Mapperley and District U3A began life in March 2016. A Steering Committee was formed and on 28 April 2016 we held our Inaugural Meeting. Nearly a year on we have 185 members and have been accepted as a full member of the Third Age Trust: see the Certificate on the right.
We are, of course, still looking for other supporters, especially if you can offer expertise in an area that others could learn from. If you have such a skill or knowledge, please contact me or one of the committee to explore the potential for another interest group. We will be pleased to hear from you.
If you have any comments about aspects of Mapperley and District U3A, either positive or critical, you can contact any of the officers, including me, on the Contact page. We would love to hear from you because this is a group run by the members for the members. We are also on Facebook , you can find us there by using the links in the top right of this page.
