Stamford U3A is part of the University of the Third Age, a self help organisation of people no longer in full-time employment, providing education, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment.
U3A membership is not related to any specific age but to a period in one’s life (the third age) after the second age of full-time employment and parental responsibility.
Anyone in their third age can join U3A and this includes people who are working part time. All you need is interest and enthusiasm.
Stamford U3A includes members from the town and local villages, and is a growing group of over 600 members.
If you are interested in joining our U3A, why not come along to one of our monthly meetings, or telephone the Secretary if you would like to find out more first. We are always looking for new friends to join us and perhaps add to our group activities.
Stamford U3A is for you.
Come and join us, anyone over 50 and in their third age is always welcome, including those still working part time. Come along to our next monthly meeting and see what you’re missing. We’re a friendly, welcoming group and it’s a really good way to make new friends and find new interests.
We offer a wide variety of activities, with groups ranging from Antiques and Art to Walking and Wine and include Chess, Church Visiting, Cycling, Dancing, Drama, Languages, Literature, Music, Singing and Swimming. See the full list and the group pages above.
We have an open meeting once a month, in which the chairman gives any notices and announcements of future events, followed by a guest speaker for about an hour. Prior to this, a cup of tea or coffee enables members to read the notice boards, meet friends and exchange news in a relaxed atmosphere.

The annual subscription to Stamford U3A is only ten pounds, due at the beginning of March.
A monthly newsletter is available to all members shortly before each monthly general meeting. See the latest one's above.
