Welcome to the Harwich Peninsula U3A web site.
We are sending a monthly bulletin to all members during the current crisis. Please look on Links at the side of this page for the future Bulletins.
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.

COVID 19 UPDATE FOR GROUPS
Outdoor Groups will now be able to meet, following Government guidlines. Please contact me for details of these Guidelines and Risk Assessment forma.
Groups are rallying round and many are keeping in touch by email, Facebook, WhatsApp or by the now more traditional telephone!
Several Groups are trying to keep to their regular schedule this way as well, with suggestions for research into specific topics to help us keep our brains active.
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. If you have articles, advice, experiences, DIY advice, poems, recipes, support etc do please write in to me, Rita Rossini, Kramermarzulu@aol.com
The Harwich Peninsula U3A serves Harwich, Dovercourt, Parkeston and the surrounding villages, and it was founded in 2006. Anyone not in full time employment in this area can join.
ALL MONTHLY MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, FOLLOWING GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES, WE WILL OPEN UP AGAIN AT THE WATERFRONT WHEN ALLOWED TO
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 300 members, and 45 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.
