Bournemouth U3A was formed in 1987 and has grown year by year so that now we have over 1,000 members. Education and leisure courses form the core activity.
We have well in excess of 100 classes which are held during the day and are led in a relaxed and informal way by unpaid enthusiasts.
There are no examinations to face, no qualifications required or awarded. There is no set range of activities; they continue year on year, or change, to reflect our group leaders’ abilities and our members’ interests, whether they be educational, cultural, physical or recreational. It is learning in the widest sense for its own sake, for personal satisfaction and development.
In addition to classes we run a range of social activities including quizzes, visits, talks and walks.
