Melton Mowbray

About Our U3A

Melton Mowbray U3A is a registered charity affiliated with The Third Age Trust.

Our U3A shares the aims of the Third Age Trust.

We are… a self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operative for older people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for our members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications but for fun.
