The university for the joy of learning

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a unique and exciting organisation which provides life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together to learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery. Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn; there is no distinction between them. Pictured are Wooler U3A, from left: Sylvia Williams (Membership), Sue Welch (Minutes), Barbara Rattcliff (Treasurer), Joan Thomas (Chairman), Ann Phillips (Secretary) and Rita Cooke (Vice chairman).
