Alan popped by from Home Instead

Dropping off some of the Live Well, Your Way magazines, Joe and Alan were eager to see how popular the monthly Wednesday meeting was. Joe, who was on his work experience week with Home Instead Altrincham, Sale, and Wythenshawe, was greeted by David. Joe was amazed at the buzz and energy around the u3a group.

Hale U3A – Learn, Laugh Live (Together)

Hale U3A – Learn, Laugh, Live

David Zucker took up the post of Chair of the Hale U3A in June 2023 and is keen to spread the word about U3A around our community in order to attract younger as well as older new members.

The U3A is a UK wide movement that was founded in 1982 and is for people who are no longer in full-time employment. It’s an opportunity for them to explore new ideas, skills and activities together with like-minded individuals. Hale U3A is a vibrant and lively organization with 870 members who attend over 70 interest groups that range from Painting and Canasta to Local History or Beer Appreciation. The latest addition is the MOTO social group (Members on Their Own).

There really is something for everyone & David wants to emphasise that Hale U3A welcomes all new members regardless of their background or ability (members can bring a carer for free) and there is a Buddy Driver Scheme, so that non-drivers are not left out.
