Welcome to Warsash U3A

Charity Registration no 1181982

With a strong national heritage behind us, Warsash U3A came into existence in January 2016. We have a wide membership base of retired and semi-retired people who are seeking to maintain an active lifestyle and wish to continue learning.

At Warsash U3A we pride ourselves on offering a variety of learning activities together with social events for members to join. We hope to encourage members to develop new hobbies and interests whilst sharing life experiences with others.

We focus on developing as many groups as we can where learning for enjoyment and fun takes place. We want to share in making retirement for our members more meaningful and enjoyable. We have various Interest Groups and are keen to see this list grow further. We also offer a varied program of events and visits. All of this run by our members at little cost.

Details of all Groups available can be found under the Groups tab on this website.

We warmly welcome new members joining us from Warsash and the surrounding area.

We also offer a monthly meeting with a guest speakers who give interesting talks on a wide range of topics, and there is an opportunity to find out more about Interest Groups and socialise with us over coffee.
