WELCOME TO FERNDOWN U3A

Learn, Laugh, Live

Another re-enrolment success for FU3A

We opened for re-enrolment only eight days ago – and have already received more than 380 application forms. If yours was among them – thank you!

Don’t forget – We can’t get things ready if we don’t know which Groups you would like to attend

FU3A – IT’S BUSINESS AS USUAL!

We are planning to re-start our Groups and Activities as normal in mid-September, subject to Government guidance.

You can view our brochure here on-line, and you can also apply on-line.

 If you’d like a paper copy of the brochure, please e-mail your home address to Judith Hodges (jdth.hodges@gmail.com).

Who Are We?

Ferndown U3A was founded in 1997 and is part of a nationwide movement that promotes lifelong learning. Currently there are over 600 members, from Ferndown and the surrounding areas. It is a voluntary organisation for retired and semi-retired people to meet together and learn new skills. Social events and visits are also arranged – study tours of Girona, Spain and Malta are among visits organised.

What is the 3rd Age?

You may ask ‘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. Members have very varied experiences and acquire diverse skills during their lives and some are able to share these by offering educational, creative and leisure activities. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal.

What Do We Do

There are no entry qualifications or examinations. Group subjects are as varied as table tennis and badminton, to languages, history and art, with several bridge groups playing during the week.  There is an  annual fee which cover access to all groups (no weekly charges) although trips and outing may incur additional costs.  

New members are always welcome!
