2013 marked our U3A Silver Jubilee!

The Inaugural Meeting was held in
November 1988

Special Notice

I am a member of the U3A and I live at Alton Downs and to keep myself busy have been assisting in putting together the military service and short biographical sketches of each of the men who served in WW1/WW2 & lived/worked in the Alton Downs District (Alton Downs, Ridgelands, Dalma, Pink Lily).

The booklet of the men who served in WW1 has been added to the website: with the photographs that we already have. This is nearing completion.

We are now searching for photographs of our WW2 soldiers, including the men who served in the Volunteer Defence Corps.

Are there any U3A members who may have any photographs of our Alton Downs soldiers which they can to share with us.

I can be contacted at or Andy at Around the Ridges website.

Hoping you can help us.
