Tarporley U3A celebrates 3 years

Home » Newsroom » Tarporley U3A celebrates 3 years

Tarporley and District U3A started up just 3 years ago and has now reached 300 members, which makes it one of the biggest organisations in the village.


U3A is an international organisation for people in their 'Third Age'.
First Age is childhood & Learning, Second Age is working and generating, Third Age is post work -- enjoying.
So U3A welcomes anyone who is no longer in full-time work.The club is based on self help -- groups with a common interest get together to explore that interest. It may be practical like photography, craft or computing, or cerebral -- like books, art appreciation, or languages, or it might be physical -- we already have 3 walking groups ranging from short strolls to heroic hill climbs. The common essence is ENJOYMENT.
There's a monthly social for all, and frequent trips out ranging from a couple of hours at the local theatre up to five days in Italy! The club has arranged for its July meeting to be an open meeting, which welcomes anyone from Tarporley & District who is in their Third Age. It's a social get together with an opportunity to meet members of the groups, view a rolling film presentation on what they've done over the last year, and free snacks and refreshments.
THURSDAY 28th July. Tarporley Community Centre.10am-12 noon. www.u3asites.org.uk/tarporley.
