Bookham and District U3A

Welcome to Bookham & District u3a Website

General Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month at 2.30pm at the Old Barn Hall, Bookham when there is a speaker, a small amount of business and a chance to chat with fellow members over a cup of tea.

We look forward to seeing you at Bookham Village Day on 15 June when we will be on stand 51, hopefully not too wet.

Our next meeting in the Old Barn Hall will be on Tuesday 2nd July when the talk will be Mary's Meals which gives the history of how a charity feeding around 200 children in Malawi in 2002 grew to feeding a large number of hungry school children in over 18 countries every day. The following meeting will be in September.

Please look at the Committee page for contact details of all the current Committee and co-opted members.
