The Harwich Peninsula U3A serves Harwich, Dovercourt, Parkeston and the surrounding villages. It was founded in 2006 and anyone no longer in full time employment in this area can join.

We meet monthly from 2pm - 4pm on the second Tuesday of the month, excepting August, at The Waterfront, Dovercourt, with one main speaker. After a tea/coffee break, the second half will be either a presentation/update of what one of the groups has been doing or a speaker from a local organisation.

If you decide to join 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.
