Welcome to the Knutsford and District ‘University of the Third Age’ Website.

The Committee has taken the sad but inevitable decision to put our U3A ‘on pause’ until September, unless things improve before then. We realise that social connections and keeping our brains active are really important, but as everyone is strongly advised by the government to severely limit social contact, the risks outweigh the benefits of remaining open. Our age range makes this especially important.

For more information please visit the National U3A website here

A number of our activity groups and the committee are currently meeting via Zoom. For more information on using Zoom please click here

This site is for those who wish to find out more about us and to provide information for members.

The Knutsford and District U3A is part of the national network of U3A groups. It is a self-help organisation for people no longer in full time employment, and provides educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment.  Skills and experiences are shared in a variety of ways through meetings, and social and group activities. There are many activities to choose from to help you get the most out of your membership.

Find out more about the U3A or come to one of our Members’ Meetings. These are held on the second Thursday of each month at Knutsford Methodist Church in Princess Street, Knutsford at 2.15pm.  After a brief update for members there is a talk by a speaker on a topic of general interest. Tea or coffee and biscuits are available after the talk.  Everyone in their third age is welcome. For details select Members’ Meetings.
