New and Potential Groups

The U3A is meant to be a self help group where members offer to run activities. It is gratifying to see that a number of members are willing to run new groups providing there is sufficient interest. 

If you are interested in joining any of these proposed new groups do let Mary Curtis know – 01799 524 784 –

Food and Drink Appreciation

This is just an idea at the moment and could be developed in different ways depending on members’ interests. It could be split into 2 or 3 separate groups, drink, exchanging recipes, sampling each others “creations” etc.  Would be great if this took off. Contact Mary Curtis if interested in joining or running this.

Darts or Dominoes

Would you be interested in forming a group to play Darts or Dominoes? Beginners welcome. 


Would anyone like to start up a Whist group? Beginners welcome.

Tutors needed

Saffron Walden U3A is looking for Tutors to take classes for German, History, Italian, French, and Writing for Pleasure.

We are also looking for people with knowledge and an interest in any subject (but especially languages, mechanics, the arts etc) who would be interested in bringing together and leading a group of members in a friendly, yet informative, environment.

If you are able to help yourself or know of someone who can help then please contact Mary Curtis – Group & Activities Organiser – 01799 524 784 –
