Welcome to Islington U3A. We are a part of the
world-wide University of the Third Age (U3A), open to all
who are retired or semi-retired.
Membership of Islington U3A is open to people living in or around Islington who want to keep their minds sharp and get out and about learning new things, sparking new interests and meeting new people. Getting involved in Islington U3A enables people to expand their horizons, share skills and knowledge and help others to learn.
U3A is just reaching its first birthday and we are proud of
all we have achieved in such a short time - see the side
panel for details of our Open Day celebration. For current
members that also means it's time to renew your membership.
The new subscription year begins on 1 October 2014 and the
subscription remains the same at £30. Members will have had
an email from our Membership Secretary, Isabel Dickson
including details of how to renew. You can renew by cheque
or bank transfer, or at the September monthly meeting by
cash or cheque. If you need any further information about
payment please contact Isabel here. New
