Just to remind you what U3As are all about
.
Universities of the Third Age (U3As) in the UK are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full time work. These provide opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun.
At present in the UK there are 892 U3As and 317138 members sharing learning experiences.
U3As can be set up in any locality
