Bridgnorth & District u3a ...
Make the most of life once you’re no longer in full-time work!
Explore new ideas, skills and interests with your local u3a.
Even Covid19 is not going to stop us!
u3a offers the chance to make new friends, to develop new interests, and to just enjoy yourself.
We are a unique and exciting organisation providing opportunities for anyone living in
or around Bridgnorth who has finished raising a family and/or is no longer in full time work.
A chance to continue to learn, laugh and live in what is often referred to as the 'third-age' of life.
Members share their skills and life experiences with each other in small groups, through a wide
variety of interests and activities. You can have fun along the way and some say that u3a is the
'youth club' for older people!

A little about Bridgnorth Town ...
An historic medieval market town with an area population of 12,500 lying in the County of Shropshire.
Once the town was the busiest inland port in Europe (pre canals and railways).
Nowadays the River Severn is clear and unpolluted, and is a quiet haven for walkers, anglers
and wildlife. Bridgnorth nestles comfortably into the Severn Valley and is uniquely divided into
High Town (with great views down!) and Low Town (with great views up!).
High and Low Town are connected by the original roadway known as The Cartway, seven
ancient Donkey Steps and the Cliff Railway which is the steepest inland funicular in Britain.
The award winning Severn Valley Steam Railway links Bridgnorth to Kidderminster 14 miles to the south.
Other surrounding towns are: Shrewsbury 21 miles; Telford 12 miles; Wolverhampton 14 miles;
Birmingham 27 miles.
