U3A (University of the Third Age)
The U3A movement is designed to enrich the knowledge, skills and experience of older folk who are no longer in full-time employment.
Membership opens up all sorts of possibilities and whether you would like to acquire new skills or simply reawaken forgotten interests, U3A will help you meet like-minded people and forge new friendships.
Ripon and District has a thriving U3A with almost 600 members and more than 40 interest groups. You can contact them at www.u3asites.org.uk/ripon (there is a ‘contact us’ e-mail form on the site.)
