What is U3A?
U3A is a non-religious and non-political self-help organisation providing educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment for people no longer in full time employment. Learning is for its own sake, with enjoyment being the prime motive. There are over 1000 U3As across the UK, all overseen by the charity Third Age Trust.
About Wheathampstead U3A – and what it offers you
Wheathampstead U3A has over 300 members who have set up and run 30+ groups covering a wide variety of interests. The groups meet regularly, often in members’ homes – making U3A an excellent way to meet and make new friends.
In addition to enjoying our many and varied interest groups, we offer informative and entertaining monthly meetings with a guest speaker, outings, the opportunity to join in regional and national events (see News & Info) plus a quarterly newsletter and the Trust’s own magazine.
