U3As (Universities of the Third Age) are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifictions, but for fun.
Ripley and District U3A was formed at the beginning of 2009 and we now have more than 200 members and over 20 established interest groups (please go to the GROUPS page on this website and follow the links for details of these). Annual membership is £18 per person.
New members are very welcome. If you are interested in joining, becoming a group co-ordinator, or just want to find out more, please get in touch through the GROUP page or CONTACT page on this website.
