Last week we welcomed the Swansea U3A back to the village to host a craft morning. The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a self-help learning organisation for people who have completed their career or finished raising a family. It means they have the time to enrich their lives with new skills and experiences, pursue their interests, form new friendships and enjoy a sense of belonging to a vibrant community

The U3A is different from most other adult learning organisations. Rather than paying people to teach, we encourage members to share their knowledge and talents with other members.

As a result, members contribute to a wide range of engaging and stimulating interest groups in an atmosphere of mutual support and companionship. Because they reflect the individual wishes of their members, all U3As are different — but they all deliver a life-enhancing experience.

Knowledge and talent were present in abundance from their volunteer teachers for our craft morning. Our residents made a selection of cards and showed off their own creative flair.

The U3A currently meet in our Garden Room with their recorder club and we look forward to welcoming them back soon for more events and classes.
