operate under the auspices of the Third Age Trust, which is the National
representative body for our organisation in the UK , but like all of
the U3As we are autonomous. We provide an opportunity to pursue life
long learning and members are encouraged to use their skills and
abilities for the benefit of others and to develop new interests. We
have over 80 study groups covering a wide range of educational and
leisure pursuits, meeting in members' homes or designated venues. We
currently have over 600 members with over 100 members of other Local U3As attending one or more of our groups.
General Meetings are
held on the first Tuesday of the month, 2.30 p.m. 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. Future General Meetings are listed below.
