Introduction

The University of the Third Age is a self-help organisation for people no longer in full time employment providing educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment.  It consists of local U3As all over the UK, which are charities in their own right and are run entirely by volunteers.  Local U3As are learning cooperatives which draw upon the knowledge, experience and skills of their own members to organise and provide interest groups in accordance with the wishes of the membership.   The teachers learn and the learners teach. Between them U3As offer the chance to study over 300 different subjects in such fields as art, languages, music, history, life sciences, philosophy, computing, crafts, photography and walking.

Wilmslow U3A holds regular monthly meetings on the fourth Wednesday of each month, with an invited speaker, a review of forthcoming events and tea, coffee and biscuits! In addition, members can attend any of the special interest groups where members can teach and learn from each other on their own interests.

Further details of the regular meetings and Interest groups can be found on this website.
