Update: the Saffron Walden U3A Newsletter

Update is published three times a year, just before the start of each new term. It is posted to all members, and also emailed as a colour pdf document to those members who are happy to receive it in that format. Due to printing costs, the posted version has only a limited number of pages in colour. The colour pdf versions can also be downloaded below.

We are always on the lookout for items for Update of relevance to U3A members, including news about classes (eg particular activities, artwork, changes in tutor or co-ordinator, vacancies in a group or the sad loss of a member) and outings, as well as poems and short pieces of prose. Photos are always welcome.

Click here to see guidance about the best way to submit articles and photos. All items can be emailed to the editor of Update Jim Dwyer at but we do need them several weeks before the start of each term.

To download copies of Update pictured below, click on the image and this will download a PDF version of the newsletter. If this does not open on your computer automatically you can get the free PDF reader by clicking here.
