Continuing to learn, develop interests, make friends and try new interests is a lifelong passion for U3A members. U3A is aimed at people who are retired or semi-retired and draws on members strengths and enthusiasms to run interest groups where members can learn both from shared activities and from eachother.
It is all voluntary, run in informal activity sessions, covering as many interests and / or educational activities that members themselves want to follow.
Stowmarket U3A currently has around 250 members. In addition to arranging a speaker most months our members run a variety of interest groups including - Art Appreciation, Book Club, Bridge, Canasta, Computing & Technology, Discussion, French, Garden Visits, Geology, Lunch Club, Music - classical, Myths, storeis & Legends, Painting, Patchwork, Photography, Play Reading, Poetry, Scrabble, Singing, Table Tennis, Theatre visits and Walking.
New members are always welcome. Membership includes both the use of resources maintained by U3A National Office and being able to take part in any activities they organise.
