The u3a provides opportunities for retired, semi-retired and non-working people in and around Bourne End to Learn, Laugh and Live. Click on the Groups Tab above to see what groups are being run in in your area of interest and contact the convenor. If you aren’t sure, you can attend up to two events before making up your mind.  Just because we’re locked down. it doesn’t mean we’ve stopped having fun.  Most of our 50 interest groups are running either in person, or using Zoom, our monthly meeting is online and the monthly newsletter goes from strength to strength. This  Sample Newsletter gives an idea of the activities that have been scheduled recently.  There are also a wide variety of regional events from Geology to Ukelele Days, always  fun ways of getting involved, and there are always new skills to learn.  All for £15 a year!   Why not join us?

Membership is very much open  (Membership Application Form 2021/2022). The cost is £15 a year.  This allows you to attend any of the events which we organise locally, regional and national events, with a small charge being made for some of these to cover costs. Our current membership is over 450 and there are already nearly 50 different groups operating in areas as diverse as Italian, Golf, Lace Making and Non Fiction Reading.

New Group?  We are  always thinking hard about what kinds of groups would appeal to our membership. Whilst our face to face activities may currently be limited we are open to any suggestions for new groups.   If you have fresh ideas please feel free to use this  contact form
