Live life to the full with Launceston u3a

An update from new chair, Georgie Adams...

Joining Launceston u3a many years ago was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Now, as recently elected chair of Launceston u3a, I’m keen to pass on the many benefits of becoming a member.

Back then, as a self-employed children’s author writing on my own, I was looking around for a friendly

walking group for company - and some much-needed exercise! Since then, I’ve walked countless

miles in Devon and Cornwall and have made many good friends.

Launceston u3a is one of over 1,000 u3a groups throughout the UK, run by the voluntary efforts of

members. All groups are members of the Third Age Trust which is a registered charity. Membership is

open to all those no longer in full-time employment, allowing the opportunity to make the most of life

by continuing creative, educational or social interests in a friendly environment.

We have over 20 groups spanning a range of interests. Once a month (except for December) u3a

members meet for a coffee morning at Central Methodist Church Hall.

So come along to one of our coffee mornings and meet us. You’re sure of a warm welcome. Who knows? Perhaps like me, joining Launceston u3a will be one of the best decisions you’ll make.

Georgie Adams, Chair - Launceston & District u3a
