Welcome to Penrith and North Lakes University of the Third Age

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Penrith and North Lakes U3A was initiated in 1996 at the Ullswater Community College, and we now have over 550 members.

 

Our present activities include:

 

Special Interest Groups are led by volunteers and cater for a variety of educational, cultural and recreational interests. The Groups all have their own identity and operate in different ways, some meeting in members’ homes, others in hired rooms.

 

The Monthly Meetings give people the opportunity to get to know each other and discuss which special interest groups are running or planned.

 

There is an annual membership fee, currently £13, which is fixed at the Annual General Meeting. Members also receive the national magazine which is published quarterly.  

 

If you are interested in sharing knowledge and experiences, developing your own capabilities by learning with others then the U3A is for you.

  • Special Interest Groups with a leader or convenor

  • Bi-monthly Newsletter - a lifeline to keep all members informed about what is going on

  • Monthly meetings with a special speaker

  • Group visits inside and outside Cumbria.
