Lifelong learning is an area of particular relevance to U3A organisations. 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.

Environment and us

This is an informal discussion group with the aim of finding out about environmental issues with a particular emphasis on our local environment. From time to time speakers are invited and sometimes visits to sites of interest to the group are arranged. The programme develops during the year based on the particular interests of the group.

We are a friendly group and would love to welcome new members.
