Welcome to our U3A

The Aughton & Ormskirk University of the Third Age is an organisation for people no longer in full-time employment. It provides educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment. Skills & experiences are shared in a variety of ways through meetings, talks, social and  group activities.

There are over 90 special interest groups (and a variety of other activities) to help you get the most out of life!

Don’t forget the AGM on Thursday June 2nd at Christ Church at 10.30am.

Two years ago, a large majority of our members voted for our U3A to have a separate Trustee Body. Last November we voted for a new Constitution which allows for this. Now you have the opportunity to vote for the members who will sit on the new Trustee Body and also the new Management (Exec.) Committee.

There will be free refreshments available in Scout & Guide HQ up until 10.30am when HQ will be closed.  

Find out more about the U3A or come to one of our weekly Horizons coffee mornings between 9.30 and 11.30 every Thursday at the Scout & Guide HQ,  just next to Christ Church, Aughton.
