We started in 1988 as part of the world-wide U3A organisation for third age people (those in active retirement). Our programme includes a range of physical, mental, and recreational activities, all run by volunteers.
We are almost totally self-funded by an annual membership fee, currently $25. We receive assistance from Gawler Council providing low cost accommodation at the Gawler Sport & Community Centre, from the Local Member for Light with photocopying, and from SA and Federal Governments with grants.
