Who can join?

Membership is open to all in their third age, which is defined not by a particular age but by a period in life in which full time employment has ceased.

What's in it for me?

Membership of Wigtownshire u3a entitles you to attend the monthly meetings, join as many interest groups as you wish, and also attend other u3a meetings throughout the UK and worldwide.

Further benefits include access to all the facilities on the national u3a website. These include on-line learning resources and courses, subject links, u3a publication downloads, and special deals for u3a members.

How much will it cost?

Membership runs from 1st January to 31st December. Our annual subscription is normally a modest £20 per year, but a reduced fee of £10 is payable if you join us after July.

2021 After much discussion the committee has decided to request a renewal ‘retainer’ of £5 which takes into account our current financial situation and will hopefully sustain our u3a for 2021.

Please make payment by either:-

  • Cheque made payable to Wigtownshire u3a, using the payment slip in the renewal letter (please do not send cash), or
  • By internet banking payment to our Wigtownshire u3a account using the account details sent to you in the renewal letter.

Sign me up!

If you would like to join us, please download and print out the membership Application Form, fill in your details and and send it to the address shown on the form. Enclose your cheque made out to “Wigtownshire u3a” for the relevant amount.


We will send you a reminder in November of each year. Renewals can be made at monthly meetings or by post. Please make cheques payable to “Wigtownshire u3a”.
