Welcome to the Harwich Peninsula U3A web site.

We are sending a monthly bulletin to all members during the current crisis. Please look under Links on the right-hand side of this page for the latest one.

Do please write in with advice and requests for assistance, in addition to anything else you would like to include: articles, poems, recipes, DIY advice, gardening tips, funny stories, ideas to support people etc.
Please contact me at: Kramermarzulu@aol.com (Rita Rossini)

Groups are rallying round and many are keeping in touch by email, Facebook, WhatsApp, Zoom or by the now more traditional telephone! Please send in some of these efforts so we can share them with everyone.

This is the easiest way to keep in touch, but we must remember members who aren’t on email. If you know of someone near you in this position, it might be nice if you could feel able to print a copy and get it to them (following the guidelines as appropriate).

Thanks to all contributors to the bulletins.

The Harwich Peninsula U3A serves Harwich, Dovercourt, Parkeston and the surrounding villages. It was founded in 2006 and anyone not in full time employment in this area can join.

Our next members meeting will be on 14th December at the Waterfront. There will festive refreshments & musical entertainment. Come along & renew your membership if you haven't already done so & get information on the groups available.

We normally would have a monthly meeting from 2pm - 4pm on the second Tuesday of the month, excepting August, at The Waterfront, Dovercourt, with one main speaker, and after our tea break, the second half is filled with either one of our Interest Groups, or a local organisation. You can come along to our monthly meeting and meet our members, before you decide to join, or use our Contact Page for further information.

We have around 225 members, and 30 interest groups. This is a very high ratio of groups to members, which says a lot about the enthusiasm and broad scope of interests of our members.

Membership costs £15.00 per annum and covers all the groups you may wish to join. No qualifications are required, and Interest groups set their own agendas and work at their own comfortable pace.
