About us

Active     Vibrant    Making a Difference

 The U3A is a group of people who want to share knowledge and experience and to take part in joint activities. It is for people who are no longer in full time employment. Our aim is to provide opportunities for members to share skills in a welcoming and sociable atmosphere. Making new friends is an added bonus!

It’s important to stress that the U3A has no paid staff. It’s entirely run by people prepared to give their time and energy to the organisation. They may run group activities, they may help with committee work – booking venues, recording membership details, managing the finances – or they may help with refreshments at our numerous gatherings. Without such volunteers, the U3A would not exist. So, though there is no requirement for members to do more than attend group activities or our monthly meetings, there is a gentle pressure on them to ‘give’ as well as ‘take’ if they can.

At the moment we have over 1800 members and usually have about 120 group activities ranging from archaeology to yoga. To take part, members pay a modest annual subscription – for the year 20-21 the Trustees have agreed that there will be a NIL membership fee – with a smaller Term fee for each group you join. We have three terms each year, starting on August 1st. 

Prospective members please read our FAQ page and if you still have a question click here to go to the Contact Us page to send us a message or click the Contact Us tab above.  Please note that it is not possible to join a group or go on a waiting list until you are a full member.
