Hayling u3a open day 2021


Hayling Island u3a

The Hayling Island u3a is open to anyone who is no longer in full time-employment and those who have retired. It is organised into groups, providing the facilities to bring like-minded people together to enjoy new and interesting pastimes and social events. We currently have over 50 groups covering creative, cultural, and physical subject areas with the addition of trips, visits and monthly speakers.

Hayling Island u3a has been running since 2006 and has around 400 members. There are plenty of opportunities for members to make new friends, learn and laugh. There are no age restrictions and our members come from all walks of life.

Open day: 16th September 2021

We're holding an open day from 10am to 4.30pm in and around the Hayling Island Community Centre and Radford Hall. We'll showcase the large number of activities and interests that we have to offer.

You are welcome to attend the day so please come along no matter your age or ability. You can find out more about the organisation, learn how to join and try out some of its activities throughout the day. There will be many ‘have a go’ stalls, demonstrations, music to tap your feet to whilst having a tea or coffee and all followed up with a talk from an external speaker.

We provide a list of events in the 'Forthcoming events' box on this page. Click any heading to find out more.

In addition we are exploring interest in new groups:

  • Lawn Bowls in the bowls hall of the community centre

We are also expecting a visit from the mayor around 2pm in advance of a presentation from Malcolm Wells - an excellent external speaker.

Library exhibition

We'll be exhibiting artefacts contributed by members in Hayling Library to demonstrate the diverse range of activities we undertake. You can see the display all through September.
