Long Description:

Camelot Area u3a

The University of the Third Age (u3a) is a national organisation run by local groups.  Camelot Area a3a membership is open to anyone in Castle Cary and the surrounding district who is no longer in full time employment.  We meet at the Caryford Hall once a month for a talk given by a range of speakers on subjects such as travel, history, nature music etc.

We offer a variety of individual interest groups on a wide range of subjects such as Arts & Crafts, Reading and Poetry, Language skills, Photography & Rambling where members can share ideas, learn, create and improve their individual talents.  These groups are run by the members and meet in a suitable venue such as Caryford Hall, The Shambles, Hadspen Village Hall or even in some of the members own homes either once a week, or once or twice a month.

We have over 250 members, many of which join one or more interest group and some just look forward to attending the monthly talk.  If you would like more information about the u3a and our interest groups and maybe a membership registration form, please contact Brian Hunter our membership secretary or visit the Camelot Area u3a website

South Somerset Community Accessible Transport provides a demand responsive transport service for the area around Bruton, Castle Cary and Wincanton. It is there to help people who are unable to use a normal bus route due to mobility difficulties.

Local organisations can hire a fully accessible vehicle with or without a driver for group outings. Transport can be provided to access the main towns in this area or to link with other bus and train services.
If you would like to use the CATbus or need a car, you will need to join the scheme.
Come and chat to us and whether it’s a weekly trip to the supermarket or a one-off trip to hospital, we can help. You can pick up a form in the office and we can sign you up straight away. Or you can download the Application form and bring it with you. Or give us a call on 01963 33864 and we can pop one in the post to you which you can either give to the driver on your first trip or post back to us
