U3A Dumfries

How do you feel about retirement?

Is it an opportunity?
Or do you get bored?
Do you feel a need to stretch your mind or body?
Whatever your reason, the U3A in Dumfries can help.
There's more in your life than you think! Find it now.


WHO LEARNS?
Whoever wants to learn.
Learning in our small study groups is informal.
Groups may be led by a member, or members may take turns to lead.


WHO TEACHES?
Whoever has the knowledge, skills, experience and expertise.
There are no entry qualifications, no exams, no professors or students.
It is a sharing experience between members who want to learn.

WHERE DO INTEREST GROUPS MEET?

Study groups–usually in members’ homes during the day.
 Some activities, like walking or art, take place at other venues.


DO I HAVE TO ATTEND INTEREST GROUPS?

No - there are also monthly open meetings,
Held on the 1st Thursday of every month from October to April with guest speakers, available to all members. at Georgetown Community Centre, Georgetown Road, Dumfries. There is an annual outing in May for any interested members whether in an interest group or not, at extra cost.


How the U3A works

The members themselves run the Study Groups, serve on committees, provide administrative help,
organise outings, study days etc on a voluntary basis. Everyone is encouraged to help in some way in the running of the organisation if they can, whether that is helping in a practical way (folding newsletters, making tea etc), or in running an event or joining a committee or offering to be a Group Organiser.
