Welcome to Aintree U3A

Welcome to Aintree U3A. We're part of the national organisation of U3A.

U3As are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full-time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun.

Key Questions

“I think the U3A has been a great innovation here in Aintree. It brings people together in shared interests. New friendships are formed and old ones renewed. Many thanks to all who help in whatever capacity.” J Parry-Jones
