Remember if you are showing any symptoms of Covid, or test positive, you must follow appropriate isolation and health guidance, and not participate in any u3a activity.



The u3a is a non-religious and non-political organisation. Its vision is to make lifelong learning, through the experience of the u3a, a reality for all third agers. This is the time after you have finished working full-time or raising your family and have time to pursue your interests or just try something new.

The u3a follows the ethos of “Learn, Laugh & Live” with no entry qualifications required and no qualifications given.

We offer the opportunity to make new friends, learn a new skill, visit places of interest or take up a new hobby. Please do come along and see how we “Learn, Laugh & Live”?

If you're interested in joining or just curious to learn more, please click here for more information.

Potential guest speakers for our monthy core meetings may like to contact our Speakers Secretary
