About Ash U3A
Ash U3A (University of the Third Age) was established in 2000, Ash U3A now has a membership in excess of 300. A monthly meeting is held at St Peter’s Centre on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 2.30 pm. Generally there is a guest speaker from outside the area or there is an alternative activity. They include refreshments, for no charge, and offer an opportunity for members to get together for a chat.
Group meetings are held at many locations, depending upon the nature of the activity, they include, The Ash Centre, St Peter’s Centre, Victoria Hall, Normandy Village Hall, Tongham village Hall, plus members’ homes.
Our membership runs from September – August. Members pay an annual subscription (currently £10 and £5 after Easter) and can join as many groups as they wish. This subscription covers central administration costs and a capitation fee to the Third Age Trust. The fee is kept low because the framework of the U3A is that it is run by its members and each group is responsible for itself. Some activity groups, may need additional funding to cover the cost of hall hire, materials, etc.
Our registration and AGM are normally held on the Last Thursday in August, at the Ash Centre with the registration between 2 – 3pm and the AGM at 3pm.
