The organisation was formed in 1985 to give over 50’s an opportunity to take up new interests and to meet people. We provide a wide choice of subjects in informal daytime classes. All our classes are friendly and relaxed.

We are a registered charity and are not funded by any other organisation. Our aims are the same as University of the Third Age (U3A) but we are not affiliated to U3A. Our thanks are due, to Kirklees Cultural Services, Libraries, various other venues and the “Reporter” group for their help and support.

A News Letter is issued to every member each October and January, giving updated information. The local press publish our events.

Whilst the Third Age advertises as much as possible, the best advertisement is your recommendation.
