The University of the Third Age, is a self-help organisation for people no longer in full time employment providing educational, creative and lesure opportunities in a friendly environment. My wife and I joined the U3A in St Albans a few years ago. There are groups we attend together and some we don’t.

Let your 3rd Age be world embracing

We visit nature reserves in the St Albans area and sometimes further afield.


The science, art and practice of creating durable images by recording light, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of light-sensitive material such as photographic film.

We often meet in someones home for a demonstration to help us take better photographs. We also have field trips.

Science & Technology

Science is a systematic enterprise that creates, builds and organises knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.

Technology is the branch of knowledge and its means of interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science.
