Welcome to Wadebridge U3A
Welcome to Wadebridge U3A web site. Click the tabs above to find out more about us, and use the Links for further information. This introductory page gives you some information about Wadebridge town and introduces you to Wadebridge Branch of the U3A.
Wadebridge U3A came into being on Saturday 14 October 1989 when the first coffee morning was held at the John Betjeman Centre. The centre had been opened six months earlier in the former London & South Western Railway station building which incorporated displays relating to the famous poet.
In 1999 following the demise of the Cornwall U3A Forum it was decided to affiliate to the Third Age Trust. We hope to continue in stability and develop our relationships both regional and national in the future.
Wadebridge is a small friendly town in North Cornwall, well known to cyclists from all over the country for the Camel trail. The old railway line running along the side of the river Camel. Cyclists can ride along the trail from Wadebridge to Padstow or alternatively in the other direction to Bodmin.
Wadebridge U3A is part of a world-wide organisation dedicated to retired people who, after the completion of their many years of employment, wish to continue learning in the company of others. We aim to encourage both study and leisure activities in a wide range of subjects - see the Groups page. All our activities are led by unpaid volunteers who encourage all members to participate in the groups. No qualifications are required and none are given.
All our activities take place in the John Betjeman Centre converted from the old railway station
