The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a voluntary, self-help organisation located throughout the UK and overseas. It is run for and by people who want to keep active in mind and body when they are no longer working full time. It is about involvement in learning new things, expanding horizons, sharing skills and experiences, making new friends, helping others to learn, accepting new challenges to show that age need be no barrier to learning or to helping others to learn. And to enjoy – if it’s not fun, it’s not U3A! No entry qualifications, no examinations, just the joy of learning in a friendly environment. If we’re going to live longer, let’s make the most of it. There is no upper age limit on curiosity! We believe learning need never stop and should be a pleasure.

They have an Intergenerational Volunteering project which recruits, trains and places older people (50 years+) to work with children and young people in schools, children’s centres and other educational settings, helping with reading, maths and mentoring. They provide full training and support whilst in the placement, and screen all our volunteers with references and DBS checks. If anyone is interested in finding out more about the project please call Claire Frost on 020 8885 8351.
We work in pairs and small groups to help members develop their photo editing skills. We use a variety of software to enhance photographs shot by individuals.
We have had 120 responses to our membership survey so far, with an interesting picture emerging. The results will be reported in the booklet that we are publishing to celebrate North London U3A’s 21st anniversary this year. We would like you to be part of the portrait NLU3A. (We are not asking for your name so all the information is completely anonymous.) You can complete the survey right away; it will only take you a couple of minutes. Just click on this link.
The fifth memory course will begin with an Inaugural meeting on Tuesday, 24th March 2015. This will be followed weekly by the four classes that make up the course starting three weeks later (after Easter) on the 14th April. So that the final meeting will be 5th May.
This course will be held in the afternoons: 3.15 to 4.45 , so allowing members already booked into morning activities to take part. The course will be held at St. Paul’s where we have our monthly meetings.
