Welcome to Carmarthen U3A
Because of Covid restrictions Carmarthen U3A has been fairly dormant since February 2020. However things are about to change and we hope to resume activities as soon as the government guidelines allow. As a first step we recently held the delayed AGM on Friday 4th June 2021 – via Zoom of course! During the AGM the interim committee was confirmed as the new committee to take the organisation forward.
The first formal meeting of the committee will be held – again via Zoom – on Friday 18th June and that will be the trigger to set out a plan for the future.
We are keen to attract new members with the interest and enthusiasm to strengthen our movement and develop new ideas for groups and activities. Do give us a try, meet new people, engage with new activities and be part of a national movement committed to enriching the lives of older people.
We would love to hear from members – new and existing – who have a particular interest and would like to lead a group around that topic.
Carmarthen U3A is a lively and friendly organisation, part of the worldwide University of the Third Age, enabling members to share many learning, creative and leisure activities.
No formal qualifications are required to join and none are given. It’s not an academic institution which awards degrees. The term ‘University’ in the title is used in its original sense (i.e. groups of people wishing to study or discuss a subject).
Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!
Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them, they are all members of U3A.
The U3A movement in the UK is supported by its national umbrella body, the Third Age Trust
