Welcome to our U3A

The Aughton & Ormskirk University of the Third Age (U3A) 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.

To Aughton & Ormskirk U3A members – There is a slight delay to the posting out of your monthly e-newsletter due to the necessity of sending another email to all members about the new Beacon membership renewal.  Don’t panic!! Your e-news will appear, as if by magic, in your email inbox on  the afternoon of Wednesday 1st March instead.
