Dengie & District

Welcome to the Dengie and District U3A

The Dengie Hundred is the peninsula of land to the east of Chelmsford, Essex lying between the river Crouch to the south, and river Blackwater to the north. It incorporates the towns of Maldon and Burnham-on-Crouch and the many surrounding villages.

The U3A is a movement promoting the values of lifelong learning in a friendly and informal environment, and is open to all in their “third age” which is not defined by a specific age but by a time in life by which full time employment has ceased.
Members form interest groups covering as wide a range of topics and activities as they desire, drawing upon their knowledge and experience to teach and learn from each other. Learning is for its own sake with enjoyment being the prime motive rather than any formal qualifications.

The Dengie & District U3A was formed in 2013 and we now have over 100 members and a good selection of interest groups. Members can belong to as many interest groups as they like. For further information click on Groups and choose a group in which you may be interested. Suggestions for new groups are always welcome.

  • If you are interested in joining or finding out more, general meetings are on the 2nd Monday of every month at Jacks Centre, Burnham Road, Latchingdon, CM3 6EX, starting at 2pm where there will usually be a guest speaker.
