Hastings & Rother U3A
The University of the Third Age is a learning cooperative of people who are no longer in full time employment. It enables members to share many educational, creative and leisure activities. Activities are organised mainly in small groups that meet regularly, often in each other's homes. Members, through sharing their knowledge, skills and experience, learn from each other. Hastings & Rother U3A has over 70 interest groups meeting mainly in Hastings and Bexhill. Group members decide on the content and structure of the group, which may meet weekly, fortnightly or monthly. There are also opportunities to take part in regional and national study days and summer schools. A key principle is learning for pleasure and qualifications are neither required nor awarded.
