Pontarddulais & District



Please see Wales U3A website for COVID19 updates


Our Thursday social meetings are cancelled until 2021. Facebook and our website will be updated when meetings will start again. If you know any member who does not use Facebook or have access to our website please let them know. Thank you. However, following the committee meeting held on 1st September it was agreed that group leaders/coordinators may resume their groups subject to the advice given on the above website. Any member wishing to participate must pay their membership fee which will expire 31st March 2022.

Pontarddulais U3A is a lively and friendly organisation, part of the worldwide Third Age Trust offering a wide range of learning, creative and leisure groups for anyone who is no longer in full time employment. It is an excellent way to meet people and make many new friends.

No formal qualifications are required to join, only an interest in the various groups which are run by our enthusiastic members.

Our various interest groups meet weekly or monthly at venues in the area; most use the facilities at Canolfan y Bont. These venues have been chosen carefully so that they can cater for the needs and requirements of everybody, both able and disabled.

Additionally, once a month we have a general meeting open to all members at which we usually have a guest speaker. Topics have included the origin of place names, the local area and the history of American soldiers billeted in the Pontarddulais area prior to D-Day.

You are welcome to come along to one of these meetings, without any obligations at 7.00pm on the second Thursday of the month at the Pontarddulais Rugby Club, Oakfield Street.
We do hope that you will join us, especially if you have an interest or skill to share.

Costs are low because our activities are organised by our members, who share their skills and expertise. Our membership is around 115 and is growing steadily. The annual membership fee is £15.00 and this covers the cost of joining as many groups as you wish.
