Welcome to our new Website

Our new website went live on Thursday 19th March 2015.  Our website address will be as it was in the past

We do hope you will find our new Saffron Walden U3A website more interesting and easier to use.

It will give us greater flexibility to incorporate photos of events and each group now has its own page which we would like to see develop further. So please can we have news and photos to go on these group pages. If you see blue text then that means there is a link you can click on to see more.

There is a handy bar on the right of every page which gives you the opportunity to look at the latest Update magazine (see the Publications page for past copies) or to see a few of the latest news items and some of the next forthcoming events. The full list of these can be found on the News and What’s On pages.

You can now see photos of the committee members. Regarding photos, we will aim to ensure that if your photo appears on the website, that it is with your approval. If this is not the case then do let us know and it can be removed straightaway. Click here to see our guidelines about this.

There are 2 password protected pages: One for the Committee to use for items such as minutes of committee meetings and one for the Group Co-ordinators. We hope to include information from the Co-ordinators’ Handbook in this section.

It will take time for this new website to develop to its full potential and we would welcome any feedback that you feel might be useful.

I am grateful for the advice given to me by our Chair Sue Barton and Update Editor Jessica Jackson over the past few months. This website would also not have been possible without the help of Rosemarie Gant from  – a web design company based in Ashdon that converted our design into this functioning website.

Thank you

Martin Hugall
