Introduction

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, Alan Clarke, 01621 784818 or email here:   Maldon U3A Membership Secretary (alanlclarke@gmail.com).

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 about 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.

Click here to see a typical calendar of our events. This list is indicative only. All meetings are subject to change, and there are other visits and one-off events which are not shown.

Membership is £20.00 for the year, 1st May 2017 - 30th April 2018. You may download an A4 PDF version of the Application Form by clicking here.

An excellent Newsletter is published each month, e-mailed to those who are on e-mail. For those who are not, printed copies are given to members who attend the monthly meeting or posted to those who were absent.
