Worksop & District

Welcome to our Website

What is the U3A?

Worksop & District U3A was formed in 2009. U3A stands for 'University of the Third Age' but it's not a university in formal sense, and we welcome members from all background because we are all graduates of the university of life! We just call it the U3A.

Our motto is LEARN, LAUGH, LIVE and we believe that the third age should be one of creativity, fulfilment and friendship. Our U3A aims to provide that opportunity for retired and semi retired people in and aound Worksop.

We have around 40 interest groups that are sporty or active, creative, musical and social. We organise trips and outings and hold a monthly general meeting with a wide variety of speakers.

Our monthly general meeting is held at St. Anne’s Church Hall (behind St. Anne’s Church on Newcastle Avenue), S80 1NQ, on the third Thursday of each month. The hall is open from 1:30pm and the speaker starts at 2:00pm.

Details of how to join and how to download your membership/application form, together with details of membership fees, can be accessed on the membership page or you could just come along to our General Meeting where you will be made very welcome.

PS: Third age?

One in four of the population is in their third age. The first age refers to childhood and dependence, the second age to full-time employment and parental responsibilities and the third age is that which follows where one is retired, or partially retired.
