Welcome

PONTELAND LEISURE LEARNING U3A - Welcome to our website

WE HAVE RETURNED TO PHYSICAL MEETINGS. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT COVID INFECTION LEVELS ARE RISING AND BE CAUTIOUS.

Are you retired, semi-retired or not in full time employment? The U3A movement believes that continuing to learn, develop your interests, make friends and try something new is a lifelong passion. Ponteland Leisure Learning is based in Ponteland, 8 miles northwest of the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne but members come from a wider area.

What activities do we offer?

We have about 30 Study Groups which are listed on our Groups page. There are usually vacancies in existing Groups but if they are full, or you are interested in a new subject, contact our Groups Co-ordinator. We are always interested in promoting new Groups and can help in setting them up.

Thinking of joining?

If you would like to try a Study Group before joining, contact our Groups Co-ordinator, or the organiser for the Group where shown on our Groups page, who will help to organise your visit.

We welcome visitors to our monthly meetings, usually held on the first Wednesday of each month in the Parish Centre (St Mary's Church Hall), Thornhill Rd., Ponteland, NE20 9PZ (Close to St Mary’s church and the Blackbird) from 2:00 pm. We have a guest speaker and details are listed on our Events page.

You can join at one of our monthly meetings or by completing our 2022 Membership Form on the right and bringing it to a meeting or posting it to us. Membership costs £10 from January for the calendar year (£5 for Associate members who are a full member of another U3A).
