What is the U3A?
U3A (“University of the Third Age”) is a UK organisation which provides opportunities for retired and semi-retired people to come together and learn in a friendly and informal manner. This includes any activity conducive to learning and personal development. Though self supporting and autonomous, our local group benefits from membership of The Third Age Trust, the parent national organisation.
Active in Ringmer for over 25 years and steadily growing, our U3A Group continues to offer like-minded retired and semi-retired residents in the village and surrounding area, opportunities to share their knowledge, skills and experience.
If you would like to know more about the history of Ringmer U3A we have a short history of our first 25 years available to read by clicking on A Silver Thread link.
Each year the committee tries to start some new interest groups. Full details of our current interest groups are available on our GROUPS page.
There are no pre-qualifications required to join the U3A, you only need the enthusiasm to meet new people, enjoy the learning experience and to have fun.
We are always happy to welcome new members!
