U3A stands for the University of the Third Age, but it is not a university in the traditional sense.
There are no qualifications needed to join a U3A and no accreditation or qualifications will be gained. However, in an informal, friendly environment, it provides educational, creative and leisure opportunities for people who are no longer in full time employment.
It is about learning for pleasure.
Current Affairs, French, Photography, Bridge, Local History.... something for everyone.
Monks Brook U3A has about 290 members.
We meet on the first Wednesday of each month in the Hall at the back of St Boniface Church in Chandlers Ford for a talk of general interest. At this meeting members also have a chance to socialise, sign up for events and join interest groups.
We are a friendly group and make new members welcome and I am pleased to say that we are now enrolling new members.
If you would like to know more about our U3A with a view to putting your name down please contact our Membership Secretary.
