Happy Christmas

Welcome to Maldon and District u3a

No longer in full-time work or raising a family?

Make the most of life - explore new ideas, skills and interests with us.

We are a non-commercial organisation for retired and semi-retired people in Maldon and surrounding areas. We are part of a UK-wide movement of locally-run interest groups that provide a wide range of opportunities to come together to learn for fun.

We hold a monthly meeting with a guest speaker in Wickham Bishops village hall on the 3rd Monday each month. While the pandemic restrictions prevent this, we have a Zoom meeting with a guest speaker. The Zoom invitation is published in the monthly newsletter sent to each member.

We have nearly 40 activity groups which organise meetings and outings for their particular interests. We also have several social events during the year to which all members are invited.

The Maritime group meetings are now held by Zoom and are open to any member. See the Activity group page for details. Contact Malcolm Case for the Zoom invitation.

NEW! Share your photographs with other members. This is for everyone who has a camera or smartphone. It's not a competition nor only for expert photographers. Each month we will choose a topic and you can send up to three photos to me. I will host a Zoom meeting so we can all see and chat about them. I will then put them on the website.

This month's topic is "Winter". Entries must reach me by Monday 4th January. The Zoom meeting will be at 11am on Friday 8th January.

To submit photos or get the details of the Zoom meeting, email "webmaster@maldonu3a.co.uk". No cheatng - you must have taken the photos yourself!
