A new U3A group is in Romsey and is urging for new members.

U3A Romsey Archway, is a new University of the Third Age group that has been created to give more people in Romsey a chance to develop skills in their 'third age' of life.

U3A Romsey Archway was set up because U3A Romsey has exceeded 900 members and there was not enough resources to cater for more members.

The group, hosts groups for people to learn and develop new skills, and also holds events for people to be educated about various topics.

Shirley Tarran is a beginners guitar group leader, other groups include languages, board games, netball, table tennis and more.

The 63-year-old from West Wellow, said: "It is a great chance for people to continue to be educated and enjoy life to the best of their ability - you're never too old to learn.

"It is primarily for retired people, but it is for anybody - we would love to have young people join.

"People who join can expect a warm welcome."

The groups can be every week or every month, depending on how popular they are, some can even be longer in between sessions.

Shirley added: "We are looking at doing a Spanish group - people can come in and share their skills as long as they are happy to.

"Anyone is welcome along - you don't need to join a group - you can just come along to the month meetings."

There is a main event meeting every month, where everyone is welcome. They have special speakers come in and educate everyone on a topic.

The most recent event was in August and it was about an expedition to Antarctica.

Next, on September 12, is an event about Broadlands country house and is with the estate manager, Richard Jordan-Baker.
