The first age is learning at school., the second is learning at work and the third age is when that is over and you can learn whatever you like. Our name can be misleading. We are not remotely like university students. We do not sit exams. It is all about friendship, keeping active in body and mind, and enjoying our leisure hours in ways that our parents would have envied.
We are local people like you living in the North Cotswolds. Begun in 1996 we have grown to currently 30 interest groups and over 400 members.
For more comprehensive information do visit the North Cotswold U3A Website and here is the latest newsletter.
Our October 2021 Open meeting at Willersey Village Hall on October 14th was a talk starting at 2.00 pm by the Severn Freewheelers, a group of advanced motorcyclists who provide a free out of hours courier service between hospitals & healthcare facilities in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire & North Wiltshire carrying medical essentials.
This was followed by a short AGM & refreshments. We hope you will be able to attend. Your support at the meeting would be welcome to ensure the continuation of our U3A.
Here is a copy of the membership application form taken from the North Cotswold U3A Website.
Monthly Open Meetings are held at Willersey Village Hall on the second Thursday of each month starting at 2.00pm and usually finishing by 4.00pm.
