U3A: Learn something new and make new friends

U3A Batemans Bay has been providing courses and social activities for the over 50s in the Eurobodalla Shire for more than 20 years. It is a unique organisation in that every person involved ― including the committee and tutors ― is a volunteer.

Tutors are members who offer their time, knowledge and interests to others.

The annual membership fee (currently $40), entitles participants to be involved in as many different courses as desired.

Due to corona virus the number of activitities in the past year were unfortunately significantly reduced. With an appropriate Covid-19 plan in place many courses are back.

Some courses are single talks, others are ongoing group activities.

The courses are held at a variety of venues throughout the shire.

This week the 2nd semester has started offering 46 courses and in many courses places are still available, such as:

  • Book Groups with an amazing variation of books to be discussed;

  • Scottish Country Dancing

  • Tai Chi

  • A dinner group, organising a monthly dinner in local restaurants

  • The U3A singers

  • Wine Appreciation Groups where participants taste and discuss wine and have some fun

  • Various discussion groups about news and history.

  • A Sketching group

And many more.

Details can be found at the website:

So why not join this active array of community activities and events.

It not just learning or being active, it is a great way of meeting other members with similar interests and forming new friendships.
