"The Air Ambulance"
In 2015, they are celebrating our Silver Jubilee. From its inception 25 years ago, with one helicopter flying with a paramedic on board, the Air Ambulance has evolved greatly. 2009 saw the start of a Doctor led service, and in 2013 they commenced night flying, with blood transfusions a reality in 2014.

As they look to 2016 and beyond, it is raising awareness through groups such as U3a that will make it possible for them to continue to develop and innovate, enabling them to save more lives in the future.

and events

We are a small and friendly U3A branch serving the areas of Ash, Ash Vale, Normandy, Mytchett and the villages on the borders of South West Surrey and North East Hampshire. We currently have 27 interest groups covering a range of subjects, (more in the pipeline), a monthly meeting, usually with a speaker, and the occasional special event.

The U3A (University of the Third Age) is an international association of independent groups of people, retired or semi-retired, who keep mind and body in trim pursuing educational, cultural and recreational interests. There is no lower age limit for joining and, as long as you are not in full time employment, you will be made very welcome. Over 800 U3As have been formed throughout the UK and many other countries have similar organisations. The UK web site of the national organisation, the Third Age Trust is http://www.u3a.org.uk

Established in 2000, Ash U3A now has a membership in excess of 300. A monthly meeting is held at St Peter’s Centre on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 2.30 pm. Generally there is a guest speaker from outside the area or there is an alternative activity. Group meetings are held at many locations, depending upon the nature of the activity, that includes The Ash Centre, St Peter’s Centre, Victoria Hall and members’ homes.

Members pay an annual subscription (currently £10) and can join as many groups as they wish. This subscription covers central administration costs and a capitation fee to the Third Age Trust. The fee is kept low because the framework of the U3A is that it is run by its members and each group is responsible for themselves. Some activity groups, may need additional funding to cover the cost of hall hire, materials, etc.
