We explore the history of the towns, villages and people of Suffolk

Join us in an exploration of the towns and villages of Suffolk. Meetings are usually on one topic with a visiting speaker or one from the group. There are regular follow-up visits. Some members meet together to undertake research into local topics. We meet at at Woodbridge Town Football Club, Seckford Hall Road, Woodbridge, IP12 4DA, just off the A12 on the Martlesham side of Woodbridge. All U3A members are welcome to our meeting on a regular or occassional basis.
