About Us

Who We Are

Wells University of the Third Age (Wells U3A) was founded in 1993 and is a registered charity, no.1023275. We are part of the National and International U3A Trusts. The U3A button at top of page will give you more details. You can read about The Formation of Wells U3A by following this link.

The administration and finance of Wells U3A is dealt with by a committee of Trustees elected from within the membership. Our current annual membership subscription is £12. A copy of our Constitution (4/4/18), Data Protection Policy and Privacy Policy are available on-line.

Based in the beautiful city of Wells, Somerset, our U3A offers retired and semi-retired people a chance to come together and learn, sharing skills, life experiences and enjoying social events. Mike our Chairman, helped us to celebrate 25 successful years in October 2018 as we hosted a buffet lunch with magical entertainment. Many past members came to share in the celebrations. In addition the 25th AGM in November was enjoyed by many. A huge birthday cake and bottles of fizz marked our special occasion.
Following the AGM, in November 2019, Sue was appointed as Mike’s successor, and committee changes have taken place as jobs are swapped and additional members co-opted to enable Sue to undertake her new responsibilities. We still need to recruit additional committee members.

Currently there are over 800 members of Wells U3A – this represents a huge pool of potential talent to run and continue to improve the work of this organisation
