University of the Third Age
The U3A (University of the Third Age) is a non profit organisation that started at the University of Toulouse France. A more informal version spread to more than 30 countries worldwide and in South Africa we have more than 25 independent U3A branches with a membership of about 11000.
In April 2016 the West Rand branch had their first meeting and is growing steadily with a membership of 170 at present. Our aim is to bring pensioners together to meet people their own age with similar interests and to form new friendships.
Monthly meetings take place every second Tuesday of the month at 9:15 at Wilgespruit NG Kerk on the corner of Mimosa and Wag-‘n-Bietjie Streets in Wilropark. There, we have coffee/tea and biscuits and then listen to stimulating talks on many different subjects.
Outings to interesting places take place every second month and during the alternative months we go to group lunches.
On becoming a member of the U3A, you can join special interests groups such as walking, singing, board games, bowls, dancing, movies, music evenings etc.
Membership is R50 per annum and visitors are welcome to the monthly meetings at R20 per event.
Tea and coffee is R5 a cup. All welcome.
