Wallace Monument


We are the local u3a branch for retired or semi-retired people in Forth Valley (Central Scotland). We offer many ways to stretch your mind or body and to socialise with like-minded older people. This includes interest groups, general meetings, summer activities and publications. If you are no longer working or raising a family, u3a gives you the chance to develop your interests, make new friends and enjoy yourself. Come and join us, and learn, laugh and live!

Upcoming Events

Enrolment is on Friday 26th August – our first enrolment event for three years! The morning session will be in Alloa, in the Old People’s Welfare Club, Erskine Street, Alloa,  from 10am-12 noon.  If you don’t know Alloa, these directions should get you there –

If following Satnav, use the postcode FK10 2AJ, which will take you to Paton Court, next to the hall.  (The postcode for the hall will misdirect you.)   Otherwise, follow the A907 towards the centre of Alloa, from either direction, then turn off to the B9096 towards Tullibody and then take the first right onto Parkway.  Follow this for about 400m then take the first left into Hill Street, a narrow opening.  Take the first left again into Erskine Street and follow this to the end.  The hall is on the corner.  Park at any convenient place on the street.

The afternoon session will be in the Bridge of Allan Parish Church Hall in Keir Street, FK9 4NW, from 2pm-4pm.

There will be the customary opportunity to see what groups are available, to chat to leaders and board members and meet up with friends for tea, coffee and cakes, but we really need volunteers to help with the cateringIf you can help please get in touch with Dawn – email dawn.moore.bd@btinternet.com or phone her 07794 387658.
