Cookridge & Horsforth U3A

Our U3A was launched in November 2008 and we now have 350 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.

Twiddlemuffs 

Thank you to all the U3A members who made twiddlemuffs. They have now been delivered to the lady from the British Wool Show and will be distributed to the Alzheimer & Dementia wards at Huddersfield and Bradford Hospitals. Some will go to a care home in Halifax. Twiddlemuffs are always needed so, if you would like to carry on knitting them whenever you have the time, they will be greatly appreciated. If you don’t have any trimmings, send them along to Pearl and the Craft Group will finish them for you.
