Wirksworth and District U3A is going from strength to strength. So far we have 25 interest groups with an appetite for more.
A number of new groups are now up and running, but may still have some spare places.
Please see the Groups page for any group you may wish to join.
If a group is full, do not let that put you off as multiple groups can be formed.

September - Wirksworth Festival
Following the success of last years exhibition the Photography group exhibited again at this year's Wirksworth Festival.
They used the wedding suite at Haarlem Mill.
25 members showcased 60 photos with further number being shown on a rolling screen.
There were a variety of positive comments from visitors which were documented in a note book.

The photography group are very grateful to Mike Lewis (coordinator) for his inspiration and enthusiasm in leading the exhibition and for all his hard work in organising it.
