Hungerford & District U3A
Are you recently - or indeed long - retired, or winding down from full-time employment and looking for new interests? Or to take up again the interests you’ve never had the time to pursue?
If you are in this so-called 'third age' and would like to learn some ‘new tricks’ – then read on, because this exciting new venture is for you.
The University of the Third Age is all about bringing like-minded people together in small interest groups to explore learning opportunities in almost every subject you can think of, from Aromatherapy to Zoology!
There are well over a thousand U3As in the UK with more than 400,000 members. Each one is run on a 'self-help' basis with individual groups deciding how to go about exploring something new, and sharing valuable life experience and expertise. There is no pressure to impose a formal learning pattern – it’s all about establishing an informal, enjoyable way to learn with and from each other about a topic of mutual interest.
You can find out a lot more about U3A from the National website.
