U3A is a self-help organisation for people no longer in full-time employment, providing educational, creative and leisure activities in a friendly environment.

Anyone interested in their local U3A and what it can offer to help people enjoy a range of enjoyable and fulfilling leisure activities as they reduce or cease work commitments can attend one of the regular monthly drop-in sessions.

These are on the first Friday of each month. The next session will be tomorrow, from 10.30am to noon, at the KIVCA offices on Riddings Road, Ilkley, Drop-in sessions are informal and give people an opportunity to meet some of their local committee members who can provide information on U3A activities.
