Welcome to our U3A

The Aughton & Ormskirk University of the Third Age is a self-help, member-run organisation for people no longer in full-time employment. Members share their knowledge, skills & experience in a variety of ways through meetings, talks, social and group activities in a friendly environment.

News from the North West Region of U3As

Our Secretary, Linda Burden, has asked that  the NW Region Magazine is given a special mention on this website along with the details and application form for a course they are running in Liverpool on Thursday 13 October called Different Approaches to Learning. It is is open to all members of our U3A. By the way our very own member, Derrick  Fewings,  is the webmaster for the interesting and informative NW Region website.

To find out more about the U3A, 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.
