On 22nd september Thetford U3A held its Open Day. Thetford U3A started in 2014 and counts over 300 members and 46 interest groups. Most of the groups were represented on the Open Day which received the visit of the Mayor of Thetford and his Consort. They were very impressed and stayed longer than the one hour allocated. Group leaders did their best to provide a 'hands on' experience to the members and visitors. Following the Open Day 5 new members registered and many groups gained new participants. The day was judged a success by everyone.
