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 828093 or Email at:     alanlclarke@gmail.com

They have a meeting with a guest speaker usually on the 3rd Monday of each month, now 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.
They must provide their own co-ordinator and venue etc.

Membership is £19.00 for the year, 1st May 2014 - 30th April 2015.

An excellent Newsletter is published each month, sent to those who are on E-Mail, given to Members who attend the Monthly Meeting or otherwise it is posted to their home.   That is service!
