Open Information Day – 2019  (updated 15 Jan 2019)

If you have ever wondered about the University of the Third Age (commonly abbreviated to U3A) and what it can offer you, come along to our Open Day on Saturday, 19 January 2019 in the Glyn Davies Room (in the old Primary School grounds in Mabel St), starting at 9.00 am.  We are a volunteer organisation, open to everyone, with a wide range of activities. It is a great way to keep mind and body active and make new friends.

All the information you need will be right there, with our friendly volunteers on hand to answer your questions.   Refreshments will also be available.

Note access has changed. The usual road access to Room 22 from Mabel Street is closed because of construction of the Disaster Management Centre. Access can be gained from Robert Street through the lower library carpark. Once in the carpark, there is a sign saying Hutchinson Deliveries. Follow that sign.
