Registered charity No: 1072658
The Fairford and District U3A (University of the Third Age) includes
the market town of Lechlade and surrounding villages. University is
used in its original sense of a group of people coming together to
learn. We have no exams, but enjoy working, playing and learning
together. We welcome members who are in their third-age, that is,
people who are no longer in full-time employment. Joining the U3A is
probably the best way to meet new friends and share interests after
We hold a general meeting on the first Tuesday of
each month when visiting speakers enlighten us on many topics and,
sometimes, simply entertain us; also visits are arranged to places of
interest. As a member, you are also entitled to participate in
activities organised by the national and regional bodies.
We have over 30 interest groups covering a diverse
range of studies and activities, so there is something that should
appeal to everyone. Members are encouraged to join all the groups that
interest them. If you have a particular skill or knowledge and would
like to start a new group, you will be given every support and
We are a registered charity and depend on volunteers to run our
affairs. If you have some time and are willing to help, then you would
be most welcome. New committee members are always needed to keep our
U3A management healthy and strong.
