Welcome to the Alford U3A website.
U3A stands for the University of the Third Age, which is a self-help organisation for people no longer in full time employment providing educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment.
The U3A approach to learning is – learning for pleasure. 



U3A membership is not related to a specific age but to a period in one’s life (the third age) after the second age of full-time employment and parental responsibility.  Anybody in their third age can join U3A and this includes people who are working part time.  There is no lower age for membership.







Our monthly General meetings are held in the back room of the Half Moon Hotel, Alford, on the third Thursday in the month at 10.30 am. Why not come along and take a look at all of our various groups, perhaps even start one yourself. Membership is 10 per person per year.


For further information concerning Alford & District U3A, or any of the groups,

please telephone the Secretary: Elaine Savage: 01507 462034
