Wirksworth & District


Welcome to Wirksworth and District U3A

Wirksworth and District U3A was launched in 2017 and is growing rapidly, both in the number of members and the range of interest groups on offer. It is run by its members who choose what activities they want to pursue, anything from photography to Spanish, gardening to current affairs. There are no paid tutors or qualifications, members offer their skills, experience and enthusiasm and learn from each other: a single U3A membership gives access to all the interest groups.

To find out more why not come to one of our friendly, informal monthly coffee mornings. There will be information about the activity groups and usually a stimulating speaker or entertainment. Coffee mornings are held on the first Wednesday of the month, 10.15 am in the Memorial Hall Wirksworth DE4 4DS. The hall has easy access for those with mobility problems. There is a convenient bus stop outside the Memorial Hall
We look forward to meeting you.
