“U3A” is an acronym for The University of the Third Age…….. …….a Movement that is Worldwide and Bookham has been a part of since 1993.
We 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 70 study groups covering a wide range of educational and leisure pursuits, meeting in members' homes or designated venues. We currently have 530 active members.
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.
