u3a is a nationwide network of learning groups aimed at encouraging older people to share their knowledge, skills and interests in a friendly environment. U3a is uniquely for older people, giving you the opportunity to meet and make new friends who share the same interests or lifestyle. If you have always wanted to learn a particular skill, or enjoy sharing your knowledge with others, u3a could be a good option for you. There is no age limit but the u3a is for people in their third age - retired or semi-retired.
Newly retired? Moved into a new area? Don’t know what to do?
With the U3A you have the opportunity to meet new people, perhaps learn a language, join a walking group, learn something new or share the knowledge you have on a subject with others.
There is no age limit with the U3A movement but to get the best out of belonging you need to be available some times during the day. Some groups meet in the evenings and weekends but others during the week.
As a member you have the opportunity to attend our monthly meeting where we have a guest speaker. This meeting is an opportunity to meet others, find out about groups and read the information displayed on our noticeboards. We have over 30 interest groups to join and if you have an interest that is not covered you can contact the Group Co-Ordinator with your suggestion. We have outings to places of interest about 3 times a year and an annual holiday.
We will be restarting our monthly meetings in the Village Hall on Wednesday 15th September. We are holding our AGM at 2.00 p.m. which is for members only but our meeting will start at 2.30 p.m. We welcome visitors. This is an ideal opportunity for potential members to come along and see what we have to offer.
