Haywards Heath & District U3A




Leader: Alan Colgate

Convenor: Sue Priddy


Meetings held: Monthly on the third Thursday of each month, except August.

All meetings run from 10.00am to 12.00 noon.


Venue: The Upper Room, The Methodist Church, Haywards Heath. Access is via the front door in Perrymount Road.


This friendly group meets each month, as above.  The membership is made up of people with basic skills and those with advanced computer skills and we aim to provide a range of topics of interest to every computer user whatever their level of expertise.  The main aim is to improve members’ abilities when using computers and digital cameras. The emphasis with regard to digital cameras is on the interface between the computer and the camera, and the use of photographic and video editing software.  


Meetings fall into two categories, a monthly meeting in the form of a prepared presentation to members on the use of a specific software package, piece of equipment or camera. There will also be additional meetings in the Autumn and Spring terms for the purpose of covering the more basic aspects and answering of members’ questions.  It also provides an opportunity to help members solve their computer problems and provide more detailed explanation of various aspects of subjects covered in previous talks/presentations.  


Prospective members should note that all communication within the Group is carried out by Email so members should have a computer and internet access.  Because of the size of the group it will not be possible to offer individual “one-to-one”



All new members warmly welcomed.


Programme of events up to end December 2018


All meetings will be held in the upper room of the Methodist Church.




































Note that topics and presenters are subject to change.
