Welcome to West Pennine Villages u3a.
We are a welcoming, friendly and inclusive u3a, open to everyone not in full time employment.
Our aim is to provide opportunities for all to come together and learn for fun.
‘Everyone in u3a should be an involved member and not a customer being served’. (a recent quote from the founder of the u3a and very relevant today!)
We are based in the villages that lie between Chorley and Blackburn in Lancashire. Our main location is Withnell Fold Sports and Social Club where we hold drop-in sessions every Wednesday at 11am. These are open to members and potential members to meet others over a tea/coffee and biscuits. We hold a number of interest groups here but groups are also held at venues in the surrounding villages or in members’ homes.
Our activities take place in groups. Please have a good look through the activities on offer – we’re sure you’ll find something to interest you! Please note however that a few groups are not operating at the moment (Folk dancing, Singing, Rusty rackets) However just send a message if your interest lies here and we’ll see what we can do!
