Welcome to the Buntingford U3A
Buntingford is a small market town in North East Hertfordshire, located on the Roman Ermine Street, now the A10 road from London to Kings Lynn in Norfolk. The population is currently in the region of 7000 persons, and growing with the advent of new housing developments.
Early in 2009 Buntingford residents who were members of other local U3A branches such as Hertford and Bishop’s Stortford, which had long waiting lists, proposed the setting up of BUNTINGFORD U3A. We realised that in the Seth Ward Community Centre, with its main hall and attendant committee rooms we have the ideal venue for many activities.
With an enthusiastic Committee, guidance and a draft constitution from the Third Age Trust and early help from other local branches, membership has steadily increased to 400 ,and the number of groups to over 35.
We are a charity (no. 725580) and the AGM is held in October.
