WADHURST
UNIVERSITY OF THE THIRD AGE
Wadhurst U3A (University of the Third Age) is a unique, self-help organisation for those not in full-time employment. We enable local people to enrich their lives, form new friendships and, with more than 20 interest groups, provide the opportunity to learn new skills, gain knowledge and attend activities including social events and visits. Our regular monthly meetings are held in Wadhurst at The Commemoration Hall on the High Street. All are welcome to attend. If you live in Wadhurst or any of the neighbouring villages and would like to find more about us and how to become a U3A member, please contact the membership secretary on tel. 01892 710678 or through the contact page on the website. Full details of all our activities and groups can be found on our website: http://www.wadhurstu3a.org.uk

HISTORY

The U3A was founded in Britain more than 20 years ago; currently there are 560 U3As with nearly 150 000 members. Each U3A is democratic, autonomous and self managed and aims to provide education and leisure facilities for men and women who are no longer in full-time employment. Drawing on the knowledge, skills and experience of its members, self-help groups are organised in such diverse fields as art, foreign languages, music, history, sciences, literature and poetry, digital photography, crafts and computing.
In addition to the self help groups there are general meetings to which all members are invited.
