We are a self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operative

for people no longer in full time work.

We provide opportunities for our members to share learning experiences

in a wide range of interest groups.

Members can pursue learning, not for qualifications, but for fun!

It’s our birthday!!

Our u3a is 10 years old in May.
