Westbury & District


National U3A:

The Third Age Trust is the national representative body for all U3As in the UK. U3As are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for those people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun. See Aims & Principles on the WELCOME page.

About Westbury & District U3A:

The Westbury & District branch of the U3A was formed in April 2011 as a result of a public meeting.

A steering group of volunteers was set up to run the branch until it was firmly established and it proved very successful. After only a few months there were 15 interest groups. Current membership is around 200 people.

The first Annual General Meeting was held on 8 May 2012 when a committee was formally elected. This and subsequent AGMs provide an opportunity for new committee members to be elected to replace any outgoing members.

Elsewhere on this website you will find details of all the interest groups. You are invited to apply to join any of those.

The aim of any group is to provide a friendly way to learn more about your chosen subject and to enjoy the company of like-minded people. The emphasis is always on having a good time! If there is a subject you are interested in which does not appear on the list, do please think about starting a group. New groups are always very welcome - contact the Groups Co-ordinator.

Groups usually meet during the daytime and may be educational, cultural, physical or recreational. In addition, there are also branch social activities, for example talks and lunches.
