Great Baddow & Galleywood U3A

The Baddow & Galleywood U3A hold general monthly meetings with an invited speaker on the second Wednesday of each month at the Great Baddow United Reformed Church at 2.15pm.

Members receive a quarterly newsletter. For more information please refer to their main web site www.u3asites.org.uk/baddow , where contact information can be found along with details of all the different events and groups that are currently meeting.

What follows below is an extract from an introductory publicity leaflet describing local U3A activities and interests

U3A main aim

The main aim of the U3A is to advance the education of people and assist them in pursuing their interests in a social environment. It is run by members for members.

What does U3A mean?

University means 'universal and open to all' after the 'first age' of childhood and full time education, and the 'second age' of work and raising a family, then comes the 'third age' of retirement, when people are free to get together to follow interests for which they previously did not have time.

Where does it take place?

Members of like minds and interests meet in small groups, weekly, fortnightly or monthly in each others homes or at some other venue.

Who can join?

Anyone who is no longer in full time employment.

What qualifications are needed?

No entry qualifications are required. No certification is awarded and there are no examinations.
