National U3A News and Events

We hope to include items here that we hear of via Third Age Trust, (which is responsible for the whole network of U3As nationally), or from East of England Region, (which oversees more than 100 U3As in our part of the UK) or the Essex Association, a network of 30+ Essex-based U3As to which we belong.

  • East of England Region Trustee – Adrian Breacker is co-opted to the the Third Age Trust’s National Executive Committee to represent Eastern Region, which includes Saffron Walden. He may be contacted via the Committee (or direct at adrian.breacker@ntlworld.com.)
