The Wellington Shropshire u3a is part of the University of the Third Age: a national movement for people no longer in full-time work, enabling them to continue the pleasure of learning and sharing knowledge. u3a branches and their interest groups are autonomous, run by the voluntary efforts of members. Our branch is currently organised by a Committee of 8 members, although our Constitution allows for 12 members, and they are supported by the leaders of the interest groups.

The Wellington Shropshire u3a was started in June 2014. Our membership is drawn from the rural towns and villages in and around Wellington, Shropshire.
We have a range of interest groups, reflecting members' interests and offering a wide range of social, learning and leisure activities, many of which take place in members’ homes. No qualifications are needed and none are awarded: the accent is on socialising and fun.

Our meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month.
Meetings begin at 2.00pm in the Wellington Methodist Church.
Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.

We currently have 17 Special Interest Groups which any member can join.
We would be happy to help if you would like to start your own Interest Group.

PLEASE NOTE: You cannot join any interest group unless you are a paid up u3a member.

The general meetings provide information relating to interest group activities, news of forthcoming events and entertainment in the form of speakers or performers. Details of planned activities may also be found in the annual programme and on the events page. There is also time to meet socially and refreshments are available.
