Coronovirus Situation
Please note that our monthly Members’ Meetings, normally held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at Central Methodists in Todmorden, have been cancelled until further notice. This is in line with the latest Government recommendations. 
Most Special Interest Group Meetings have also been cancelled until further notice. Group Members will probably have already been advised by their Group Convenor.  However, if you are in any doubt, please contact your Convenor before attempting to attend a meeting.
Let’s Go trips have also been suspended until further notice. 
This announcement overrides all other information on this web site about future meetings. 

Welcome!  We hope you enjoy exploring our website and learning about our thriving and friendly organisation (if you’re not already a member).  We recently celebrated our tenth anniversary and have grown from seven founder members to over 500 in that time.

We run self-help education in the Todmorden area through shared learning and creative leisure, via a wide number of special interest groups, monthly talks and Let’s Go trips – all in a pleasurable, stimulating and friendly atmosphere.   Anyone no longer in full-time work (Third Agers) can join.  About us has much more detail about the local and national organisation, how we’re run, our meetings, groups and our aims.  Do browse around!

U3A is run by volunteers and always welcomes help.  Here is a message from the U3A founder: U3A members are all volunteers and have we all have responsibilities.
