Our aim
We bring (mainly) older people together for enjoyable shared learning experiences.  Our aim is to allow everyone who wants to learn something or share activities in friendly settings a chance to do so at minimal cost.  At the moment we only charge £10 a year for membership plus £4.00 subscription to the national U3A quarterly journal (Total £14.00).
