Lifelong learning

If you are not a member of our u3a and would like to join, please click here. Lifelong learning is an area of particular relevance to U3As. We have several groups in this faculty, details of which can be viewed using the buttons at the foot of the page. We hope there will be a few that appeal to you. 

To contact the leaders for the three groups below directly, please send an email as follows:

Environment in the News group - u3abasingstoke.environment1@gmail.com

Literature group - u3abasingstokeliterature@gmail.com

Transport - u3atransport@gmail.com

If you would like to contact the leader of any other group, please use the Contact us form. Your enquiry will then be forwarded to the leader of the group in question.

Creative writing

Are you someone who has always felt you have a short story or even a book in you? Then our small, friendly group could be just what you need to improve your technique and discuss your problems with sympathetic, like-minded writers. Most of our members enjoy writing for fun and we share our writing in a relaxed, supportive setting. 

While those members with greater expertise willingly provide assistance within the group, this is not a teaching group for absolute beginners. We do expect potential members to be able to demonstrate a knowledge of creative writing or to be able to submit a sample of their work to ensure that the group is suitable. Access to a word processor is highly desirable.


Current Activity

We are continuing to meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month, 2 – 4pm. The venue issue has still to be resolved.  In recent times, we have held some all Zoom meetings and some hybrid meetings, with some members on Zoom and some in the Group Convenor's home. 

Links to the groups:

Venue: Osbourne room, Viables Community Centre, The Harrow Way, Basingstoke RG22 4BJ


Date: 1st and 3rd Thursdays


Time: 14:00 - 16:00
