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.

We are looking for a new Supervisor for our group. If there is anyone in NLU3A who would like to supervise us, we would love to hear from you. We usually start the session with 4 prepared hands, which we discuss afterwards for a short while. The second hour is free play, with our supervisor advising as and when necessary.
If this appeals to you either on a weekly or fortnightly basis, please contact Sue Gold on 0208 349 3996 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
One or two volunteers are required to provide backup for the setting up of audio/visual equipment for the monthly meetings and one or two other events each year. No technical expertise or previous experience is required as training will be provided. Volunteers should be reasonably fit, as a certain amount of lifting/carrying is required. Anyone interested in helping out should contact Ann or John Dugdale in the first instance on 0208 346 7194, or touch base with them at the next monthly meeting.
