Welcome to the Hayling Island u3a website. As part the UK-wide u3a network, Hayling u3a helps its members to make the most of life once they are no longer in full time work by exploring new ideas, skills and interests.

There is no age restriction to join our organisation and we enable all our members to learn, stay active and have fun. It’s local, social, friendly, low-cost and open to all.

Come join our many members, share your skills with others, take up something new and develop your interests in a friendly atmosphere. Learn, Laugh, Live!

We have more than 50 groups for different activities including:

  • Literature and reading
  • Arts and craft
  • Board and card games
  • Musical groups
  • Outdoor physical activities
  • Monthly talks
  • Visits...

... and we are always looking to expand our activities. Let us know if you have an idea for a new group.

You can see a full list of our current groups here and the same list by activity here. Some of our groups are full but we are always keen to set up additional groups with the same subject if there are several members interested.

If you're interested in a group, its main page allows you to register your interest even if you are not a U3A member.

Our next monthly meeting is at 2pm on 16th June titled "Passports, Assassins, Traitors and Spies". More here.

Booking is open for our next visit on 22nd June to Beaulieu and Buckler's Hard. Cost is just £25. More details and how to book your place here.

Subscriptions for 2022/3 are now due. Find out how to renew here.
