Tadley & District


Welcome to the Tadley & District U3A

The U3A (University of the Third Age) is a self-help organisation offering people who are no longer in full-time employment opportunities to share their life-long knowledge, skills and experience with like-minded people in a wide range of interest groups. This is a two-way process with all who want to learn having the opportunity to help with the teaching. Learning is carried out in an informal atmosphere, free of the stress of exams, with the emphasis purely on fun and friendship. "If it's not fun, it's not U3A".

Regular monthly, outside speaker meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday in the month from 10:45-1pm at Tadley Community Centre, New Church Road. These are always very informative and often very amusing and cover a wide-ranging variety of topics. Group Leaders are in attendance so making it easier for everyone to see what groups are on offer. Everyone can catch up with the latest new groups and meet with and make new friends. Membership provides access to all groups plus a regular U3A magazine. A nominal charge is made for attendance at all groups as a contribution to hall hire and other running costs etc...

Tadley & District U3A was officially founded in March 2012 and we are now pleased to announce that as of October 2014 we have passed a significant milestone by having more than 500 members.

We now have 44 group activities and we encourage our members to suggest or volunteer to run new groups. If you are interested in starting up any group then please contact Mike (Group Liaison) via the Contact page.

There is no monthly meeting in December as we have the Xmas lunch on Tuesday 9th December and Thursday 11th December, so make sure you have purchased your lunch tickets.
