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 Meeting : Our first Enrolment Meeting since 2019 will be held on Friday 26th August. The morning session will be in Alloa, in the Welfare Hall, from 10am-12 noon.  (It is near the station and has plenty of parking.)  The afternoon session will be in the Bridge of Allan Parish Church Hall in Keir Street, 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.  We’ll be providing more details nearer the time, but please put the date in your diaries.
