In past eras, some of the most valued people were the ones who could make sense of the money coming in and out of the kingdom. In our current age this continues to be true. In our u3a we have continued this honourable tradition, currently with Jan Ashcroft. Jan has bought our finances right up to date and in good order. However, Jan has completed 4 years and is stepping down at the next AGM. We are now looking for a person who is computer literate, can communicate online with HMRC, has book-keeping experience and can produce a set of accounts at the financial year end, to join our committee and carry on Jan’s excellent work. Jan will support whoever wishes to take over the role. Please contact Janor Malcolm for further information.

What Is u3a?
The University of the Third Age (u3a) exists to provide a framework in which retired and semi-retired people from all backgrounds can get involved in helping to create, join and run different learning-based activities. These improve our knowledge and skills, enhance our physical and mental well-being and keep us socially connected.
South Solihull u3a is a lively and friendly group of over 150 members. We are always open to new members - for further information please contact us. Our activities are organised by a committeedrawn from our members.
"Those who teach shall also learn and those who learn shall also teach"
Other u3as In The Area
Of course, we'd love you to join our u3a, but if we don't offer the Interest Group that you are looking for, or would prefer to join a group in a different location, there are many other u3as in the area. Have a look at the other u3as in the area.
Keeping You Safe
We take your safety seriously. Safety measures include: * Production and implementation of our Covid-19 Risk Assessment * Production and implementation of various venue and activity risk assessments. * Training in emergency first aid and use of defibrillator. 30 members have been trained so far.
The strength of our u3a is in its interest groups. You can find a full list of our groups here.
Most groups are eager to welcome new members, and some are actively seeking to boost their numbers so please do consider joining one, or maybe more! Just contact the group's Coordinator to express an interest.
You can also help us grow by leading a group. A huge knowledge of the subject is not necessary, there is help from u3a Headquarters. If you are interested in starting a group please email our Group Coordinator - David Hunter.
