Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

The u3a gives members local and national opportunities to learn a wide range of things at low cost. You can share your skills with others, take up something new and develop interests in a friendly atmosphere. The activities are organised by the local members and here in South Molton we develop not only new skills, but great friendships.

What We Do

Our membership is for those who are not in full-time employment. We meet in and around South Molton, enjoying a wide range of activities which bring friendship and learning to us all. It’s a great way of keeping in touch with friends and making new ones. It’s amazing what knowledge and skills are out there.

We cover topics including local history, plays, poetry, scrabble, table tennis, bowls, history of theatre, creative writing, to name but a few. It’s a great way to keep active and get those grey cells working.

We are always looking for new members to add to the mix of social and creative activities. Can you cook, take great photos, know lovely local walks, know about gardening, have a passion for a subject you’d like to share? 

Whatever skills you have we’d like to hear from you. Or if you just want to join the fun, then get in touch. The u3a is open to anyone who is not in full-time employment.

Additional Info

What the u3a means to our members: Our local U3A is an excellent way to become part of a new community when moving to an area. Depending on the interest groups one joins, the U3A can help one to get to know the local geographical area - walking groups, garden visits, local history groups being examples of such groups. During Covid-19 lock-downs the U3A has provided formal interaction with members, but also  relationships already formed have provided a network of friends, supporting each other informally through telephone calls, WhatsApp groups, etc. 

Another member said: My name is Gilly and I live in High Bickington. I am 69 going on 70, who can believe it! A friend told me about South Molton u3a and said they were very friendly and had about 20 different interest groups. So I joined and the first time I came I met a neighbour in the car park! So now we go to groups together. I have made lots of friends and we have tried to keep in touch with everyone over lockdown. We are rejoining the very interesting Shakespeare Group and I am very much looking forward to our monthly coffee mornings with interesting speakers restarting in Filleigh on Tuesday Sept. 14th. I have been on several outings, holidays, visits and walks and thoroughly enjoyed them all. I also love the fact that there are some groups suitable for the not so mobile too. Also a few of us meet for lunch after the meeting. 

I look forward to meeting everyone again soon.
