Welcome to Pershore & District u3a, a friendly and supportive group open to all people in their ‘third age’ who live in Pershore and the surrounding areas.
There is no minimum age at which you can join, but the focus is on people who are no longer in full-time employment or raising a family – that is how we define ‘third age’. After working all our adult lives, the transition to retirement poses its own challenges – how to occupy yourself, keep your brain active and make new friends. The u3a provides a way to develop your interests, learn new skills and even pass existing knowledge on to others in an informal and enjoyable setting.
We offer a welcoming, sociable environment where members come together to share educational, creative and leisure activities. Our vision is to make lifelong learning, through the experience of u3a, a reality for all third agers.
Interest Groups – At our heart are our many and varied interest groups, all of which are organised by members on a voluntary basis, and cover a huge range of topics. We have around 75 interest groups that normally meet regularly for members to teach and learn from each other. There are no exams to pass or qualifications offered; simply the opportunity to pursue your interests or try something completely new, purely for pleasure.
