U3A Ellesmere is a University of the Third Age branch in Canterbury, New Zealand. We meet at the Lincoln Events Centre, Meijer Drive, Lincoln on the fourth Wednesday starting at 10am.

22 September


Due to the real uncertainty of the times we do not have a speaker for this date. There will be further information with regard to future meetings once updates are received about the status of the lockdown.

29 September

Tai Tapu Sculpture Garden is a genuine treasure in our local area. The garden displays examples of contemporary sculpture in an environment rich in native trees and shrubs. Again we plan to have co-founder Peter Joyce at our second September meeting if we can. Peter’s life experience includes an extensive background in Psychological Medicine and eleven years as Dean of the University of Otago.

We have several interest groups and more will come with demand and willing helpers. These are based on members’ interests and the availability of leaders for those groups. See current interest groups here.

Programme for this year.
