WELCOME TO LOSTWITHIEL AREA U3A
We are a U3A Group located in South East Cornwall drawing our members mostly from Lostwithiel and the surrounding areas of Lerryn, Lanlivery, East and West Taphouse, Bodmin and Fowey.
U3A stands for the University of the Third Age, which is a self-help organisation for people who are retired, semi-retired or no longer in full time employment providing educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment.
U3As are charities in their own right and are run entirely by volunteers. Local U3As are learning cooperatives who draw upon the knowledge, experience and skills of their own members to organise and provide interest groups in accordance with the wishes of the membership.
