Latest news from Berwick U3A

Well, the Christmas and New Year celebrations are over for another nine months (you've got to get organised early), those new year resolutions have all been ditched or forgotten, and it's still cold and dark outside.

But don’t despair, Berwick U3A is here.

If your plans to take up jogging have fallen by the wayside, the U3A provides many opportunities to get fit, from badminton, ball skills, table tennis and exploring movement and dance to line dancing, tap dancing and ride and stride.

Don’t worry about not being able to keep up – everyone in the U3A is either retired or semi-retired so the pace is usually fairly relaxed.

There are almost 50 U3A groups in Berwick.
