Sutton-in-Ashfield U3A

Welcome Modern

to Sutton-in-Ashfield U3A


U3A stands for University of the Third Age, or that period in our lives after childhood and working life, when most of us have finished paid employment, and our families have flown the nest.  Although called a University, we do not offer degrees, but use the term in its original sense, of groups of people wishing to study, discuss a subject or share an interest.  We take this idea very loosely and include many and various topics, which in some cases are just pure enjoyment, and do not include study at all!Come along and see if this can fill a gap in your life.


Chairman’s Corner

August saw the 3 day presentation of the Annual Conference and AGM organised by U3A National Office.  This was my first attendance at this important gathering and my first event representing Sutton U3A as Chairman.


I selected Workshops which successfully answered several queries that have occurred over the last few months.  It was an amazing experience where I met several members from U3As nationwide.  We had the immediate connection of a common aim of 'Learn, Laugh, Live'.  This new strap-line is to encourage new members who may be intimidated by the 'University' contained in our logo.


U3A is about meeting new people and new experiences.  The National Conference and 3rd day AGM, where Avril joined me, fulfils this criteria.


The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.


Thank you, see you soon,              Jenny
