Welcome to Milford on Sea U3A. We are a very sociable local organisation for older people who want to meet together for learning and leisure activities. We are now in our fourth year and membership is continuing to grow steadily, and existing Interest Groups are flourishing and new groups are being formed.
We hold a general meeting for all members, with a guest speaker, on the first Tuesday of each month at 2pm, in the Community Centre, Sea Road, in the Village. Our aim is to provide a varied, informative, entertaining and stimulating programme for our members. Visitors can usually be accommodated for a small charge (£3), subject to space. These meetings provide an opportunity to hear announcements about Interest Groups and we round off the afternoon by getting together over tea and biscuits. We pride ourselves on being a very friendly and welcoming U3A. Our programme for the current year can be seen by using the 'Events' button above.
The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a national self-help organisation for older people no longer in full time employment. We provide educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment. The Milford on Sea U3A was established in November 2012, and we now have over 300 members. You can see interesting articles about what we do by looking at past editions of our Newsletters.
Although each local U3A operates in its own way, all branches use the knowledge, skills and experience of their own members to set up and run special interest groups according to the wishes of members. Milford on Sea U3A has a number of groups covering a wide range of interests. Members are welcome to join however many groups they like, and those with particular interests, experience or knowledge may decide to set up and coordinate new groups. No one needs a qualification to coordinate a group, just the enthusiasm to get things going. To learn more about our groups, press the 'Groups' button above. We also run day and half day workshops where you can try out something new.
New Members are always welcome. Why not come along and find out more?
