Sawston Area


The u3a encourages people, no longer in full time employment, to enjoy education and activities in an informal and friendly setting. Prior to the enforced shutdown, Sawston u3a had over 500 members with 53 classes, activities and visits. We are optimistic that our regular programme will resume in September/ October and thank all members who have offered opportunities during lock down, including using Zoom.

This new brochure has been prepared by Martin Harriss with the support of tutors, leaders & committee members and our thanks are expressed to them for their dedicated work.

Closure of many of our courses for a year and the lack of social contact has been very difficult and I am sure that we will rejoice in being able to renew friendships and meeting again in the new term.

Welcome back. I am sure that Sawston area u3a will once again flourish following the National u3a mantra of Learn Laugh Live.

Even though we have over 500 members we are always keen to welcome new ones to keep us fresh and hopefully bring different ideas for new classes, even lead them.
Please click Activities to see what we offer for the 2021/2022 year which starts in October. To join, please click Membership for full details.

The Sawston Area is only one of over 1000 U3As through the UK, and even more worldwide.
