Welcome to our U3A

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

There are over 100 special interest groups (and other activities) to help you get the most out of life!

Scarily, we are already more than half way through 2016!

Do take a few minutes to peruse the News page. It contains Reports and Reviews of some excellent U3A activities already enjoyed this year as well as News of future events.

(If any member wants an item adding to the News page or Calendar, please use the Contact  form to send the content in to the Web Manager.)

To find out more about the U3A, you are very welcome to come along 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.
