The University of the Third Age is a mutual aid self-help movement - a modern community of scholars and artists, catering primarily for people in the Third Age of their lives.

The overall aim of Beaudesert U3A Inc. is to provide the members with both the stimulus of mental and physical activity and the satisfaction of a continuing contribution to society. It will enable them to take up new interests and to extend old ones. It will offer the joy of learning for the sake of learning: it will open up new horizons for them - unrestricted by the requirements of vocation or the desire for qualifications, and it will do so, principally by drawing upon the extensive life experience, skills and energies of the members.

U3A Monthly Social Luncheon
Friday 9th February 2018

There were 32 attendees, 3 of whom were new members who had not attended a social lunch previously. I spoke to all of them and received very positive feedback.

I personally enjoyed the meal very much, didn’t have to wait long at all, and thought it was good value for money, and one of the better pub grub outlets we have been to. There was some confusion regarding the “seniors bundle menu offer” which saw the first choice cake of the day run out before everyone got their serve, but they redeemed themselves by bringing around an alternative a bit later.

They were under a bit of pressure. (At $16 for a main meal, cake of the day and a coffee of choice, I believe it to be good value). There were about 7 choices on the Seniors menu, Laurel had the battered fish, salad and chips and there were 2 fillets on the plate. I had the Trawler plate for $27 from the main menu, fish, oysters Kilpatrick, tiger prawns, lemon pepper squid (very tender) salad and chips, a big meal.
