A NEW educational group for retired people is being launched in Stansted Mountfitchet on Thursday (April 30).
The University of the Third Age (U3A) already runs a group in Saffron Walden, and with more than 400 members it is thriving.
Now the U3A - the self-help educational movement for people no longer in full time work - is starting at the Stansted Day Centre on Crafton Green, Chapel Hill.
Organiser Maureen Lindsell said: "Each U3A is different. The programme reflects its members' wishes and resources. Activities which can be arranged include languages, history, book clubs, painting, music, walking, poetry, keep fit and computing.

The first meeting will run from 2.30pm to 4.30pm and will give people the opportunity to enrol and find out more about U3A.
