Live, Learn and Enjoy is the U3A Maitland motto. Universities of the Third Age, or U3As as they are more often called, are voluntary, non-profit organisations which aim to offer people educational and social opportunities operating in a pleasant and supportive setting. U3As are basically self-help groups built on the premise that collectively older people have the skills and knowledge to provide learning opportunities for themselves.

Whats New

Be on the lookout for fake tradies knocking at your door. They appear more frequently during warmer weather and after natural disasters, and often use fear tactics to get your money.
