U3A – University of Third Age

Jean & Jenny

Jean & Jenny

University of the Third Age is run by volunteers and is a marvellous opportunity for retired and semi-retired people to come together and learn, not for qualifications but for the pleasure of learning and chance to make new friends.

West Norwood has its own U3A branch that meets every third Wednesday of the month after lunch at The Park Tavern at 56 Elder Road, SE27 9ND
All new members will get a warm welcome. Contact Jean or Jenny http://u3asites.org.uk/code/u3asite.php?site=403&page=4
