Peter Fletcher. It is with deep regret that we have learned that Peter passed-away peacefully at home on Sunday 13th April after a long illness. Funeral will be at Mansfield Crematorium, Newstead Chapel, at 10 am on Friday 25th April. Our thoughts are with Lynette at this sad time. Tribute here.

Welcome to Mansfield and District University of the Third Age – where retired and semi-retired people are never bored or lonely; keeping active and learning together.

We offer Nottinghamshire seniors something to look forward to in retirement and a friendly way for you to enjoy it.

Mansfield U3A April 2014 NewsletterMembers are part of an international organisation providing educational, cultural and social opportunities for people who are retired or not in full-time employment. So if you enjoy making new friends, the stimulation of learning new things and passing your knowledge on to others you'll be very welcome. (Click here to watch film 'Life in the Third Age'.)

We can open the way for you to join in with continued learning in academic subjects at national summer schools and participate in our interest groups where we co-operate for activities and hobbies.

Click on our latest newsletter to see what members have been doing recently and what's planned.

You'll see how members share interests in art appreciation, bridge, card games, crafts, singing, needlework, music, history, literature, wine tasting and scrabble. How we keep learning about antiques, drawing, photography, technology, writing for pleasure and genealogy. How we keep fit joining-in with physical activities like walking, bowls and Tai Chi. How we socialise on theatre, concert and garden visits, caravanning, lunches and group holidays.

(Interest groups are only open to U3A members so please contact the membership secretary if you need to enquire about vacancies.)
