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 Wednesday morning of the month in the COWSHACC, Welshpool. starting at 10.30am. See the Monthly Meetings page for latest details. Specialist Interest Groups meet as and when they wish. See the List Of Groups page for the latest news on the status of our groups.

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.

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 u3a National Office, The Third Age Trust. The u3a  movement in Britain was set up in the early 1980s.      

Joining a Group

All groups warmly welcome new members and most groups are not full. The best way to make contact with a group is by email to the group leader, who should then respond with details of their next meeting, correct at that time.
