We are a registered charity. Northern Ireland charity number: NIC103317. We can apply for gift aid on your annual membership fee if you are a taxpayer. If interested, please speak to Treasurer Karen for details.

It is with great honour I introduce myself as your new Chairman.

I take over from Bill Pollock and wish to thank him for leading the East Antrim branch of the U3A for the past three years. I hope to follow his excellent leadership over the next few years.


A few words from our new Chairman

I am a retired University Lecturer and have a life time interest in volunteering in youth work (Scouts). I played a lot of competitive badminton and still enjoy hill walking and singing.

The U3A aims to facilitate active learning and enjoyment in a social environment based on the skills and knowledge of the members. Therefore the activities offered by the EAU3A can be as wide ranging as the imagination and interests of our members, so do not hesitate to suggest new ideas, you may be pleasantly surprised at the response.

I look forward to meeting with you all at our monthly meetings.

Robin Connor
