We’re having a Christmas social event this year on Tuesday, 13 December from 10.00am. Come and have a blether, tea/coffee and mince pies (£1) and enjoy some entertainment

Enjoy the u3a Experience
learn ~ laugh ~ live

Welcome to Duns & District u3a

u3a members come from all walks of life. We are busy staying active, making new friends and learning together. There is no upper age limit – and no lower limit either, although our members are likely to be retired or semi-retired.

  • Come to a monthly open meeting in the Volunteer Hall on the second Tuesday of each month to socialise with other members and hear speakers on a wide range of interesting topics
  • Join as many of our interest groups as you like – ranging from tap dancing to modern languages, to arts and crafts, book groups and opera appreciation – to name just a few

There is so much to do – and if you can’t find what you are looking for in our programme, why not see if there are other people with a similar interest who would like to join you in a new group. All our group leaders and committee members are volunteers – sharing a love of learning and a zest for life!

Would you like to join our u3a? Go to our Membership page to download your enrolment form.
