Active in Ringmer for over 25 years and steadily growing, our U3A Group continues to offer like-minded retired and semi-retired residents in the village and surrounding area, opportunities to share their knowledge, interests and experience.  Though self supporting and autonomous, our group benefits from membership of The Third Age Trust, the parent organisation.  Current Annual membership of Ringmer's U3A costs £8 for which members receive:


Three issues of the Ringmer U3A Newsletter
Four e-bulletins to update members between newsletters
Five issues of “Third Age Matters”, the national U3A magazine
Access to various local interest groups
Access to activities, such as residential courses, run by U3A nationally
Access to activities, such as study days and workshops, run by the Sussex U3A Network


Each year the committee tries to start some new activity groups.  Current activities include Ambling, Astronomy, Family History, three French groups, two Gardening Clubs, Knit 1-Chat 1, Mah Jong, Out & About, Photography, Poetry Circle, Readers Circle, Scrabble, Spanish, Theatre Club, Walking and What the Papers Say.  Ideas for new groups are always welcome.


Open Day for enrolment for the year September 2017 - August 2018 will be on 16th August 2017 in the Village Hall, Symons Hall.


Enrolment form for 2017-2018 will be found here.
