University of the 3rd Age
(Social & learning club for older people)
The Welwyn Hatfield U3A is a thriving organisation for those individuals who are no longer working full time but wish to continue their learning through intellectual, cultural, practical and aesthetic development. We are a self-help group learning from each otherís experiences. We now have well over 800 members and there are over 60 study groups which meet regularly. We hold weekly meetings which are held alternately between Ludwick Hall and Breaks Manor. Speakers cover a wide range of topics, from, for example, stories about living in the walls of the Tower of London to talking statues! The doors open at 10am and talks start at 10.45am.
