We have monthly meetings open to the whole membership when we have a variety of lively speakers followed by refreshments. These take place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 2.15 pm to 4.00 pm, at the Highwoods Community Centre (buses No 2, 8, 8A, 65).

All the outings have coach (King’s) pick-up points in Wivenhoe, Highwoods and Marks Tey.
Details and booking forms are sent out with the newsletter, usually 2-3 months before the outing.

Following successful Study Days held in 2016 and 2017, the Chairmen of the local U3As have agreed that the next study day will take place on Thursday 11th April 2019 at The Gilberd School, Colchester. The success of this event is largely dependent upon sufficient members volunteering to act as tutors on the day in their chosen subjects. The planning team need to know of those members who are willing to offer their services by the end of July 2018 so that a programme can be put in place prior to bookings being taken. If you feel you would like to consider sharing your knowledge with others, then please contact our chairman, Ruth before the end of July 2018.
