  • Retired, but not retiring?
  • Are you retired, working part time, or have finished raising a family?
  • Would you like to make new friends?
  • Are you looking for activities to join, or do you want to learn something new?

If yes then NESTON U3A is just the place for you!

Physical activity, leisure, special interests, and learning are all catered for in our organised groups.


U3A stands for the University of the Third Age, where Third Age is defined as the stage when we have finished working full time, or raising a family, and have more time to spend on our own interests. It is not in any way like the usual sort of university, members need no qualifications and there are no exams, the name simply reflects the fact that our activities can offer opportunities for new learning in a relaxed and friendly setting. Perhaps most importantly, it offers a chance to meet a wider range of people and make new friends.

Neston U3A was formed in 2002 and currently has over 300 members. Membership is £10 per annum, which includes a £3.50 affiliation fee to the Third Age Trust and postage of the National News Magazine issued four times per year. Neston U3A is affiliated to the Nationwide Third Age Trust, which currently has a membership of over 400,000 people in the UK.

Volunteering with the Neston U3A
Neston U3A is a registered charity (No.1147830) and is run entirely by volunteers. We are always looking for more people to help with organisation and for ideas – if you are newly retired then you might find it very fulfilling to join the committee, or take on a small job to assist us in providing activities for our members.
