Thinking of joining Mawdesley u3a?
We would be delighted to welcome you. Our weekly Community Morning gives us the opportunity to meet new members, introduce them to some of the group leaders and explain the many activities that are on offer. We have many, many classes and activities run by members for members.

We can now welcome you in person and you will start to feel the benefit of this amazing organisation, learning new things and making new friends. We really look forward to welcoming you and getting to know you.

If you are interested in joining please use the link to the Chair on the Contact Page of the web site to send a message, including your preferred telephone number, and she will contact you, or turn up to a Wednesday Community Morning at Mawdesley Village Hall, where you can find details of all the groups and meet many of the leaders.

Tea or coffee is available for a small fee and, in a pleasant, social atmosphere, you will have the opportunity to talk to some of the 800+ members. As there is a designated 'Welcome Table' for new or recently joined members there is no need to feel uncomfortable about being alone. You can sit and have a drink and a chat with the Welcome Team and/or other new members. This table can also be used by members who are on their own and feel they need the company of a friendly face.
When you arrive for the first time you will be introduced to someone on the Welcome Desk who will explain how we are organised and answer any questions you may have. We will not ask for your membership fee until you are sure you wish to join us.

If you want to try a taster session at one of the groups, we can arrange this, however PLEASE CONTACT THE GROUP LEADER via their webpage in order to check a place is available. Once you become a member you can join as many groups as you wish. Most groups make a small charge to cover the room hire and refreshments.

Whether you were looking for something specific or just exploring the internet, now that you have found this page we hope you will linger and explore the rest of the site. Take your time, the U3A is about relaxing, enjoying and frequently learning, in the company of friendly, like-minded people of a certain age. We are all retired or semi-retired and like to be described as mature, experienced adults with a huge vitality and zest for life. One new member described us as a 'youth club for grown ups' and that, we hope you agree, creates an exciting image.

When you explore a little further you will find a huge variety of groups, activities, trips and events to suit all tastes. If you do not find what you are interested in then, join us and start a new group; you will very soon meet other people with a similar passion. The U3A is essentially a self-help organisation, flourishing through the willingness of individuals to lead groups and provide opportunities.
