WYRE U3A (University of the Third Age)

We are one of over 800 U3As across the country and world wide. Like all U3As it is aimed at people no longer in full time employment who share an interest in and a love of learning and who want to keep active in mind and body. Many of our members say that it is not only the shared learning which they enjoy but also the friendliness of the other members. The social aspects of belonging to a U3A are very important to us.

To see the extensive list of groups presented each week by the Wyre U3A please vist their website here.

It costs £10 for individual membership of Wyre U3A, this includes the £3.50 per person we pay to the central organising body, The Third Age Trust.

Most group meetings take place in members homes but larger groups meet in hired premises. The most popular venue is Carleton Memorial Hall where, in common with other hired venues, members pay a small fee to cover the room hire. Where meetings take place in private homes there is often a small contribution towards refreshments.In addition to the interest groups we hold a monthly meeting at 2 pm on the second Thursday of the month at Thornton Little Theatre when we have a guest speaker. A charge of £1 is made for this meeting.

Please note the June meeting is the AGM and for MEMBERS ONLY.

Healthier Fleetwood is a not-for-profit organisation supporting the physical and mental health of the Town's residents by connecting them to each other, services and voluntary groups in the community. As an individual's confidence grows they take more control of their own wellbeing and an active role in the decisions that affect them.
