Welcome to Wymondham u3a
u3a stands for the University of the Third Age and was founded during the 1970s in France for people in their "Third Age" - their retirement or semi-retirement age. Now world-wide, the u3a is apolitical, non-denominational, and non-profit making with over 330,000 members in the UK.
We are an extremely friendly group of retired, or semi-retired people from the market town of Wymondham and the surrounding villages. Founded in 2001, we continue to expand and thrive and currently have over 56 interest groups and 435 members. Our aim is to provide an opportunity to share friendship, knowledge, skills and experiences, whilst at the same time having a lot of fun.
New members are very welcome so please visit our Membership page for an application form. Under normal circumstances, we would encourage you to come to one of our informal coffee mornings, held every Thursday at 10 am in the Tiffey Room, Central Hall, Wymondham - however, unfortunately due to the current COVID situation we have had to cancel these until further notice.
A good place to go after reading this section would be our Groups Page. Many of these groups are held in the homes of members which leads to a warm and friendly atmosphere - and you may get a cup of coffee too! You could also visit our Events page for a list of upcoming meetings and events. Again, due to the current COVID situation, not all groups and events are running as normal but we will of course post an update here as soon as we know more.
For further information regarding membership, please send a message to 'Membership Enquiries' on our Contacts Page and use it to ask any other questions that you may have.
