Learn, Laugh, Live! is the motto of the national u3a network, and our Ripon and Disrict u3a is thriving.

We are here for people no longer working full-time but still active, and being members makes such a positive difference to our lives. Why not come and join us?

With our many interest groups, covering a wide range of activities, we have something for almost everyone. (Spot a gap? - why not suggest forming a new group?)

With best wishes . Hoping to meet you soon.

Being u3a members makes such a positive difference to our lives. If you have been thinking about joining us and perhaps wonder what it is all about here are a few details:-

The U3A movement is designed to enrich the experience of older people who are no longer in full time employment.

Being a member opens up the possibility of learning new skills or perhaps reawakening forgotten interests.

For many members it is the meeting of like minded people that is most important and forging new friendships.
