Formed in 2008 we have grown from seven founder members to over 400 at present.
We run self-help education in the Todmorden area through shared learning and creative leisure, via a wide number of special interest groups, monthly talks and Let’s Go trips – all in a pleasurable, stimulating and friendly atmosphere. Anyone no longer in full-time work (Third Agers) can join.
About us on the U3A website has much more detail about the local and national organisation, how we are run, meetings, groups and aims.
Regular group meetings
Monthly member’s meetings take place on the third Thursday of the month from 2pm with a speaker.
We welcome new visitors who can attend one of our meetings in person to see if they would like to become a member. The committee members wear name badges so they are easy to spot and discuss membership with.
How To Get Involved
Membership of U3A Todmorden costs £15 a year (or £10 if joining for the first time after 1st November). You can pay at any monthly meeting or pay by Annual Standing Order. Membership is open to older people in Todmorden and surrounding areas who are interested in U3As aims, and who are in their ‘third age’ – no longer in full-time employment.
