What is the ‘Third Age’?  It’s when you’ve finished working or bringing up a family and have more time to follow your interests and lead a full life.  

Ferndown U3A was founded in 1998 and currently has in excess of 500 members, from Ferndown and the surrounding areas. It is a voluntary organisation for retired and semi-retired people.  Members share their skills and experiences by offering educational, creative and leisure activities.  The atmosphere is relaxed and informal.  There are no entry qualifications and no examinations.

We aim to help you enjoy your retirement!
