Our u3a


u3a (University of the Third Age) is a UK movement of retired and semi-retired people who come together to continue their educational, social and creative interests in a friendly and informal environment.

Members of local u3as draw upon their knowledge and experience to teach and learn from each other. It’s all voluntary, run in informal activity sessions, covering hundreds of different subjects.

Weston Turville u3a first met in June 2010 and has grown to over 450 members meeting for various activities and outings throughout the month. 

We hold a monthly meeting on the fourth Thursday afternoon of every month except December at the Rugby Club, Brook End, Weston Turville at 2.30pm.

Many interest groups meet regularly and are organised individually by members who wish to learn more about or pass on experience of a particular subject, or to share in activities or outings.
