Update: the Saffron Walden u3a Magazine

Update is published twice a year. It is posted to all members and a copy including a greater amount of colour is uploaded to this website. 

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.  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.
