Penicuik and District U3A is a branch of the international organisation “University of the Third Age” and is affiliated to the Scottish U3A. The aims of the U3A are to provide retired and semi-retired people with the opportunity for learning, education and leisure activities, giving space and time to meet other people with similar interests and to keep an active mind, and in some groups an active body too. The activities of individual interest groups are self funded and self managed and work by drawing on the skills and experience of the membership. Annual membership is £15.
