The U3A movement offers life-enhancing opportunities, to those no longer in full time employment, who are either retired or working towards retirement.

It's never too late to learn!

Experience the delights of learning not for qualifications, but for the joy of discovery!

Here at Newport U3A, we have over 30 groups - there is bound to be something to pique your interest! Have a look around our website, and then come and join us - we look forward to meeting you.

NEW CONVENOR FOR CRAFT
Ros Lee is taking over as convenor of the Craft group from Pat Fackrell. We will miss Pat, but she isn't going far and will still be a member of the group. Contact details for Ros are on the Craft page.
 

FAMILY HISTORY/GENEALOGY
This new group (convenor Stephen Barry) will start, all being well, on Friday 27th January, from 1.00 - 2.30. We are currently in the early stages of finding what the group wants to do, what they are capable of, and how we can best set about doing it. If you are interested in joining the group, please ring Stephen (01633 677520), or just turn up on the day.

RADIO 4 - YOU AND YOURS
Eric Midwinter, one of the founders of U3A, has been asked to speak on the Radio 4 programme "You and Yours" at lunchtime on Monday 12th December in recognition of achieving 1000 U3A groups across the UK. It was on "You and Yours" where Eric first aired the U3A concept back in 1981.

The feature is also available on the iPlayer - www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b084thf4 (at about 34 minutes in).
