Letter from the Chairperson

Thank you for visiting the Upper Bann U3A website.

U3A stands for University of the Third Age, and is an organisation for retired or semi-retired people. Members share many educational, creative and leisure activities. By sharing our knowledge, skills and experience we learn from one another, making friendships along the way. In Upper Bann we have over 300 members and currently have 22 active groups, many of which are open to new members.

Our current activities are:

WEEKLY Board Games, Bridge, Chess, 3 Cycling Groups, French for Improvers, 2 Walking Groups, Watercolours, Yoga.

TWICE MONTHLY Maths for Fun, Nature Group, Sing Along.

MONTHLY Book Club, Get Togethers, Luncheon Club, Photography, Poetry Group.

AS NEEDED Bonsai Group, Genealogy, Theatre Outings.

All of our groups are voluntarily run by members for the benefit of other members. You may see an activity that interests you or perhaps have a hobby that you want to share with others. U3A is the perfect place to share your interests, gain new skills and make new friends!

You can come along as a guest to a maximum of two sessions, but after this you need to join U3A to benefit from our range of groups. If you are interested in joining us you can download a Membership Application Form from the website. Membership for the current year is £10, due for renewal in April 2020.

I look forward to welcoming you to Upper Bann U3A.

Wendy Alexander
