If you are retired or semi-retired, we offer a wide range of activities and interests in the company of other like-minded retirees. There is no lower or upper age limit.
Interested in joining?
Pre-lockdown, there were usually around 50 activities every month. Most groups have now resumed; some also use Zoom or other on-line system. See the calendar of events on our home page. All meetings are subject to change, and there may be other visits and one-off events which are not shown.
- An excellent Newsletter is published each month, e-mailed to those who are on e-mail. For those who are not, printed copies are given to members who attend the monthly meeting, or posted to those who were absent.
- In addition, members receive the magazine 'Third Age Matters', which is published five times a year by the national Third Age Trust.
Our activity groups are listed on this website. On joining, you will receive the latest newsletter with the contact details for their co-ordinators. Before attending any of our activity groups' events, please contact that group's co-ordinator to ensure that there are places available.
The Committee will communicate with you via email where possible.
We have an agreement with Blackwater, Heybridge, Limebrook, Burnham, Dengie, Crouch Valley and South Woodham Ferrers u3a that our members will be welcome at their activity groups if there are enough places available. Preference will always be given to the organising u3a's members.
Membership costs £ for 1st September 2021 to 31st August 2022.
