Interested in Helping Out with Cardiff u3a?

We're looking for volunteers to help with the work of the u3a and to keep us going into the future.

There are suggestions and role descriptions on our Situations Vacant page or you can contact any member of the Executive Committee to discuss options.

Some of the roles are in specific areas but some general support is welcome across the board.

Thank to the tireless efforts of Mario Greening, the Magazine Editor and contributions across our membership, the Spring 2022 Magazine has been made available to all members, either online or in printed form. Well done to all concerned!

April 2022 Monthly Meeting - view the recording of "Rebellion in the time of pandemic - the Peasants' Revolt & the Pilgrimage of Grace" by Les Hales (This is recording from 3/05/2021 as the talk could not be recorded on the day).

NEW: There is a new form of tennis called Walking Tennis which will be suitable for U3A members. A softer ball is used, 2 bounces are allowed and people aren't allowed to run.

A free taster session is on offer for a group of u3a members at Heath Park, so please get in touch with groups@cardiffu3a.org.uk and we can see what day suits most people. (23/03/2022)


New: Latest National Newsletter from the Third Age Trust (19/04/2022)

Third Age Matters Arriving in Early May


Please note that your Spring edition of Third Age Matters Magazine is expected to arrive on doorsteps early in May.


This slight delay is due to the Trust moving to a new printer following the issues experienced with the winter edition. We hope this move will limit any further delays in delivery in the future.


The Spring issue is another fantastic read, with tasty recipes to make your u3a 40th Anniversary Picnic in the Park go with a swing, 40th Anniversary events, members’ inspiring stories, your favourite walks and much more.....

Thank you for your understanding and patience - it is very much appreciated.


Re-start of Face-to-Face Meetings

All groups are now meeting or are planning to re-start. Eight are on Zoom, but the remaining groups now meet face to face with Covid Safety measurers in place. Hybrid meetings, offering both zoom and face to face, are being introduced and will be increased as groups familiarise themselves with the technology.

We are planning to introduce new groups so please get in touch with the Groups Coordinator if you have ideas for groups you would like to see us starting groups@cardiffu3a.org.uk
