PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST BE A FULLY PAID UP MEMBER OF TIPTREE U3A BEFORE YOU CAN ATTEND AN INTEREST GROUP
Welcome to the Local History and Historical Buildings Group, usually referred to as the Local History Group.
We are a group of over 50 members keen to explore local history within the county of Essex.
Our meetings take place in St Luke's Hall, usually on the 1st Thursday of the month from 2:00 pm until 3.30 pm.
Please note that on some occasions meetings may take place on a different day or at different times if we are visiting a place of interest.
New members are welcome - even if you just want to listen to one particular speaker.
