Welcome to Pontyclun U3A

Pontyclun U3A was launched in March 2016 and meets on the third Monday of each month in Pontyclun Community Hall. At the end of March 2019 membership stood at over 180.

How do I join?

Anyone can join as long as they are in their ‘third age’, that is they are retired or semi-retired; it is not defined by a particular age but by a period of life. All you need is interest and enthusiasm.
Annual subscription is £15 which covers all the groups you may wish to join. Prosepctive new members are welcome to attend one monthly meeting free of charge.
If you want to join the Pontyclun U3A, just come along to one of our monthly meetings and sign up. If you want to attend any of the interest groups before a monthly meeting, you are welcome to do so, and explain you plan to join at the next general (monthly) meeting.
If you have any questions about membership, please contact our membership secretary via the Contact page.

What is U3A?

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a learning co-operative of people no longer in full time employment. It is run by the members for the members.

Interest Groups

U3A members form interest groups covering as wide a range of topics as they desire. No qualifications are sought or offered. Learning is for its own sake with enjoyment being the prime motive.

We currently have 19 interest groups. For more information on these groups see the Groups pages.
