Yealm U3A

About the U3A


U3A (University of the Third Age) is a national organisation (Click for more details) for people no longer in full-time employment. Local U3A's are learning cooperatives that draw upon the knowledge and skills of its members.

The Yealm branch of the U3A was formed in 2007. It is going from strength-to-strength. We now have over 200 members and 14 self-education groups. Some groups meet regularly and some on an ad-hoc occasional basis. Most have a summer break. Some are entirely sedentary and village-based. Others are more physically active and involve outings. There are also occasional speaker meetings of general interest for the whole of the membership.

Despite being called a "University", learning is completely informal and voluntary. There are no exams, and no attendance requirements. As the groups are self-help groups, active participation by the members is important.

The annual subscription of 10.00 entitles you to attend any of the groups ( space permitting). There may be small additional individual meeting costs.

Information is disseminated through this website (www.YealmU3A.org.uk) and the Newton and Noss Parish Magazine, in addition to notices on boards at Noss Hard and opposite The Green in Newton Ferrers.
