Welcome to the website of Burton Joyce and District U3A.  I am Alwyn Foster, current Chairman (2018 -19) and I look forward to meeting you during the term of my office.

2018 marks our 10th Anniversary and we are looking forward to celebrating with  an Open Day later in the year.

We are one of over 1,000 similar organisations in the UK, part of the “University of the Third Age” worldwide network dedicated to “Life-Long Learning” for retired and semi-retired people. Our organisation, unlike the WEA, is all run by volunteers and we can only ever offer what our members are prepared to give.  But I think you will be pleasantly surprised at just how much that is. Come along to one of our monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of each month to see if we appeal.  The venue is Burton Joyce Village Hall and we start promptly with a speaker at 1.45pm.

The beauty of U3A is that you can be as involved as little or as much you want to be, but like everything in life, the more you put in the more you get out. We currently have over 60 individual interest groups, so there is bound to be something to your fancy.  If not, though, you can always start one yourself.  It’s that easy!

Here, you can find out more about us, and about the U3A idea, who we are, what we do, where we meet, and what activities we undertake.

The Search box at the top of each page allows you to search our site if there is something in particular that you want to find.  If you have any questions, please ask, or if you have any comments, please send them to us using the contact details on our Contact Us page,

After having read all about us, we hope that you will want to join us. For more details on joining our U3A, please visit our How to Join page.

If you are already a member, then you will find all the latest news of our U3A and of the Third Age Trust and our latest Newsletter, “Newsline”, in the News section.

Whether you’re thinking of joining, or are already a member, I hope that you find our site informative and easy to use, and if you’re not a member will want to join us.

Enjoy your visit, and please bookmark this page so you can keep up to date with events and changes in our U3A.
