About Cambourne & District U3A
The U3a is a charitable educational trust, set up under the umbrella of the Third Age Trust. The Charitable purpose of this trust is "the advancement of education, and in particular the education of older people and those who are retired from full time work, by all means including associated activities conducive to learning and personal development, in Cambourne and its surrounding locality."

The constitution (a copy of which can be inspected at our monthly meetings and at the AGM) establishes an executive committee whose members act as the trustees. The initial members of the executive committee will stand until the first AGM, at which time the membership will vote to ratify the constitution and to elect a new committee - for which the initial committee members can choose to stand. The initial committee members are:

Fran PanruckerChairman

Eileen DallozSecretary
Nigel Day
Lucy Purvey
Kathleen Thompson
Christine Tyler
Celia Waldron
Penny Dryden

Our constitution and other policy documents are also available for download - see the 'Links' area of this page.
