Members of the Third Age Trust

Welshpool & District U3A is a cheerful self-help organisation devoted to keeping the more mature brain active. We welcome as members people from all walks of life who are no longer in full-time work. We cover the towns of Welshpool and Montgomery, and their surrounding rural areas.
Each U3A is autonomous and decides how it is run and organised. We have monthly general meetings, usually with an invited speaker, held on the first Tuesday morning of the month in the COWSHACC, Welshpool. Specialist Interest Groups meet as and when they wish.
Coronavirus. Please refer to the Monthly Meetings page and General News page for the latest situation about meetings.
Welshpool U3A was formed in 2005, and we are part of a national and international movement of people who believe that, we should always be mentally and physically active. Now there is time to dig into all those things we might have missed out on whilst working and bringing up a family.
In the UK U3As are supported nationally by the Third Age Trust. The U3A movement in Britain was set up in the early 1980s.

Specialist Interest Groups

Our main activities are carried out in Interest Groups, where members come together to learn about and participate in a particular topic. There is pretty well something for everyone!
Take a look at our Groups menu on the right for more detail.
