HORSHAM and District U3A members hope a new lease for their Horsham railway station base will provide certainty for the future.
Association president Bob McIlvena said members were conscious about the possible return of passenger rail services to Horsham, and what that might mean for the organisation and its more than 300 members, who use the station for a range of classes.
He said he had spoken to Horsham Rural City Council, which was working through a lease with land owners VicTrack.
"That will give us some security for the future," he said.
"The council leases the building from VicTrack, and we lease it from council.
"We've been in the building for many years.
"We are very grateful to council for the assistance they've given us over the time we've been there in the way of repairs and other works required."
Last year, association members called for a purpose-built centre for elderly people in the city, where people could participate in a range of activities and programs while also accessing other services.
Horsham and District U3A - which stands for University of the Third Age - runs more than 100 classes a month, including many in the railway station building.
