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.

Would you like to learn Esperanto? – the world’s easiest language. Esperanto is an international language created towards the end of the 19th century and is still very much alive almost 130 years later. It was created as a neutral language, not linked to any one country, so that people everywhere could communicate on a basis of equality.
Anna has been working in Esperanto for almost forty years. If you would be interested in learning this language, please contact Candiss Waldram on 8883 1395 to express an interest.
Adventure Travel Planning group
The idea is to meet together and establish, by group discussion, what participants wanted from the group; what previous experience they have had of travel and of adventures nearer to home. From there we would discuss various methods to ensure a successful trip. Information will be provided and also details of where to find further information. We would together develop our plans for our new travels so that by the end, each member would have a clear travel plan.
If you are interested, please contact Rory on firstname.lastname@example.org or Candiss on 8883 1395 to express an interest.
Due to the high demand for the Away Day visit to the British Library, we have secured another slot for this trip, the same date 23rd October, but in the afternoon at 2.00 pm.
In consequence we have some available space.
