No longer in full time employment and living on Hayling?

Then Hayling u3a could be for you!

Never heard of u3a? Then read on to find out more about this organisation that brings together like minded people in a variety of different activities.

u3a is an international organisation, with over 1,000 UK u3a groups up and down the country. It is open to any adult who is no longer in full time employment and those who have retired. There are is no age restriction and our members come from all walks of life.

The organisation provides the opportunity for members to enjoy new and interesting activities, pastimes and social events where you can meet new friends, learn and laugh.

Hayling u3a has been around for 15 years and is a thriving and vibrant organisation where you can meet people with similar interests. We have almost 500 members and our activities are split into different interest groups. Currently we have over 50 groups covering creative, physical, and cultural subject areas.  We also organise trips to various venues both locally and further afield. At this time many of our group meetings have had to be suspended but some are still taking place online using Zoom or other similar media options. (Don’t worry if you have never used Zoom before, we can help you get started.)

In addition to our interest groups, Hayling u3a has monthly meetings where members get news updates and hear speakers on a variety of subjects. A free cup of tea or coffee is included, which gives an opportunity to chat to other people afterwards. These meetings take place on the third Thursday of the month starting at 2pm at Hayling Island Community Centre. Currently these monthly meetings are suspended due to Covid restrictions but we are successfully holding these via Zoom.

Further details of the Hayling u3a can be found at or email  Look out for our monthly articles where we will tell you more about our activities and our up and coming Open Day
