18th April 2019 April newsletter added. This page updated. 15th April 2019 Activity Groups' pages updated.
The Maldon & District U3A was launched in May 1998 and has flourished into an enthusiastic group of some 400 members. There are currently vacancies so If you would like to join then please contact the Membership Secretary, Malcolm Case, by using the membership contact form.
We have a meeting with a guest speaker usually on the 3rd Monday of each month in the Wickham Bishops Village Hall, see the link to "Meeting Place Directions" above. The doors open at 1.30pm for a 1.45pm start.
There are nearly 40 activity groups available which are held in Members' houses, various halls and rooms in Maldon. They are all self-regulating and self-funding and their aim is to provide a forum for informed discussion, to develop a practical skill or enjoy a leisure activity in the company of others. Members are encouraged to form new groups on whatever subject that takes their fancy. Each group must provide its own co-ordinator and venue etc.
