Herts Network of U3As

Network news

This new Network News page is intended to highlight issues that relate to the all individual U3As in the Herts Network. The topics are varied and have been the subject of Network-wide seminars.


The Network committee currently has no Secretary. This role is not onerous but is critical to the smooth running of the Network.
If you would like to volunteer, or know anyone in your U3A who would be willing to step in, please contact Barbara.

Network Insurance Cover

The Herts Network has renewed its insurance for 2019. The policies cover Public Liability cover for officers and trustess, and Tour Operators liability.
Also attahced is an Incident Report form which can be downloaded in the unfortunate event that an incident occurs involving one of our members.



A topic that has everyone running for cover but some useful notes have emerged over time from regional discussions. A Regional Newsletter from 2016 still carries useful guidance, alongside notes from 2015 on Being a U3A Trustee and the comprehensive Charity Commission Leaflet on Being a Trustee.
