The U3A is an organisation for retired or semi-retired people, who want to stay active, both mentally and physically. There are many groups, including Walking, Mah Jong and Current Affairs. Monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 2pm, followed by chat and socialising.

More about Greyfriars
We are a registered charity and the Community Centre for the market town of Ringwood – over 120 clubs, societies and organisations regularly meet in our various halls and rooms. There is something for everyone!
Although Greyfriars has been established a long time, we are also planning ahead to meet future needs in Ringwood and a major current project is to build a new Arts Centre – actually on the Greyfriars site. To read more about this, please see the item and linked page immediately below.
Some of our activities are welfare based, aimed at helping people in the community who need support – this includes offering a minibus service and a Good Neighbours Scheme.
When you make a booking with us you are also supporting our work in serving the local Ringwood community.
New Arts Centre
Looking to the future, we have an exciting plan for a new Arts Centre at Greyfriars. This will meet a significant community need and is a joint project with Ringwood Musical and Dramatic Society (RMDS). Planning permission has been granted and fund raising is well under way.
