Shaftesbury and Gillingham U3A (SGU3A)


SGU3A provides a wide range of enjoyable, educational, creative, and leisure activities on a self-help basis for those at, or nearing, retirement and living in the Shaftesbury and Gillingham area of Dorset.


The University of the Third Age is a nation-wide organisation for third-agers who feel the need to keep their minds active without the stress of tying themselves into an examination system.
