Welcome to the Skiddaw U3A
U3A stands for University of the Third Age, which is a self-help organisation for older people no longer in full-time employment. You don’t need formal qualifications and there are no exams.
Members share their knowledge, experience and talents with others in special interest groups. All groups meet during the day at various venues or in members homes, and the atmosphere is informal and companionable thus helping everyone to feel at ease. Outings are also arranged from time to time, to lunches, theatres, concerts and other places of interest.
In addition, our regular monthly meetings give members a chance to socialise and listen to excellent guest speakers who cover a wide range of topics.
Please use the buttons above to explore in detail what we have to offer. To find out more about the history and ethos of the U3A click on U3A to follow the link to The Third Age Trust.
Our annual subscription is currently £12.00. If you are not a member we hope that you will join us.
