Welcome to Carmarthen U3A!

“Are you retired – or partly retired – and now looking for new challenges and opportunities?

The u3a is for people who want to keep active in mind and body, enjoy socialising, having a bit of fun and are no longer in full time employment. Carmarthen u3a has much to offer as we begin to emerge from the lockdown and restrictions of Covid.

Our main meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month in the Outdoor Bowling Centre, St Peter’s carpark, Carmarthen. We meet for registration and a chance to socialise over a cup of tea / coffee and a biscuit before the main business of the afternoon – announcements, group updates and a talk given by a guest speaker on a subject of general interest followed by the results of the raffle!

Check out the list of Monthly Meetings under the Meetings tab or just click here

Take up a new interest! (Stop Press – check out the new groups!)

u3a Members also benefit from being able to join any of the growing number of Interest Groups which cover a wide variety of subjects. Some members join the u3a just to be able to participate in our friendly groups led by knowledgeable and enthusiastic leaders. Members are invited to start new groups or re-start dormant ones which may be in search of a new leader! This could be your moment to flourish and develop new skills and have a lot of fun and a laugh with good friends.

… fascinating and informative talks by speakers passionate about their subjects … anything from the slave trade to plans to open the gardens at the local museum in a multi-million pound restoration project

… learning and socialising for pure pleasure with a great group of people who have become friends
