Additional Details
Redditch U3A (University of the Third Age) is part of a national and international voluntary learning co-operative whose aim is to encourage lifelong learning for mature people. Redditch U3A was set up in 1991 as a self-help group, to provide educational, creative, leisure and social activities for members of the local community no longer in full time employment and who may be missing the stimulation and social opportunities that work afforded. There are now more than 150 members and 12 different interest groups, ranging from Book Club to W.R.I.T.E. (see Groups for a full list). Classes take place at different venues in Redditch, often in members’ own homes or in local hired halls. All our leaders give their time and expertise voluntarily. No qualifications are required and none are awarded. Meetings take place at 2 pm on the first and third Tuesday of each month at Community House in Easemore Road. There is a varied programme of speakers covering a wide range of topics. A charge of £1.50 is made, to cover the cost of the speaker, room hire and light refreshments.
