We are very lucky to have purchased our own premises consisting of two good sized community halls where the majority of our activities take place. We are in the centre of Carrickfergus, a few minutes’ walk from the 13th century castle, which is still intact! We are a thriving U3A with a great sense of community spirit. New members are always welcomed with open arms and we are open to suggestions for new interest groups.
