Cookridge and Horsforth

Welcome to our website.  Click items on the Menu bar above.

To find information about individual Interest Groups, please look at the GROUPS page above.

Our U3A was launched in November 2008 and we now have 345 members and over forty Interest Groups and short courses. Our members come from Otley, Rawdon, Headingley, Adel, Bramhope and Guiseley as well as Cookridge and Horsforth.

Our aim is to provide shared intellectual, social and leisure activities for people in the Third Age of life. Anyone no longer engaged in full time employment is very welcome to attend one of our monthly meetings without obligation to join.

Why not come along? - learn new subjects and skills, develop new hobbies and make new friends. Please go to the Join Us page, and enter your email address to enrol and pay online.  The Annual Membership Fee has been maintained at £14.00 and membership runs from 1st April to 31st March. 

Cookridge & Horsforth, Leeds, Wetherby and Harrogate U3As have agreed to open up general meetings to members of each of our four U3As, provided there’s space in the meeting room. It may also be possible for our members to join Interest Groups in the other three U3As, although that will depend on the Leader of the Group concerned. If you do attend meetings at one of the other U3As, you will need to produce a current CHU3A renewal receipt. This arrangement applies only to the above-named U3As.
