Mainly for Men


Trip to Greene King Brewery at Bury St Edmunds 

Co-ordinator: Peter Long – 01799 524443 –

We usually hold two meetings a term on the first Monday in the month at Saffron Walden Bowling Club, Abbey Lane, Saffron Walden at 2.15 for a 2.30 pm start. A charge of £3 a person is made for every meeting to enable us to cover our overheads.

We occasionally arrange outside visits and social events.

Although the topics chosen are mainly for the interest of men, all U3A members are most welcome to attend.

Future Events

We hope at some point to have a  visit to a micro-brewery – watch this space.
