Welcome to Leigh Belfairs U3A.
Leigh Belfairs U3A was founded in 2014. We currently run 16 different group activities, which may be academic, cultural, social or physical. The purpose of the U3A movement is to enrich the lives of its members and Belfairs U3A seeks to do this through supporting the groups who are engaged in different activities. If an interest group does not already exist then members can start one up if there is sufficient interest within the membership to make one viable.
Naturally, at the present time, with Coronavirus amongst us, our groups are subject to restrictions
However, we are taking new members and joining is simple. Click the CONTACT button above to get in touch with any member of our committee to find out more about membership or you can download an application form from the 'Membership Application 2020 - 2021' link on the right hand side of this page. This can then be completed and returned to the membership secretary's address, as show on the foot of the page.

Following increasing levels of Coronavirus cases across the UK there have been further amendments and restrictions put in place across each Nation of the British Isles.
Please note, there are many local restrictions in place across the Nations and it is vital that you check on this and follow the guidance when planning any activities or travelling.
As of writing, Southend and Thurrock are at Level 1, whilst the remainder of Essex is now at Level 2. It follows that if you are in Level 2 then the restrictions relevant to that level go with you when you travel or meet up with other people. If you are in level 1 and travel to a level 2 area, then the rules applicable to that area will still apply to you.
