Bookham and District U3A
Bookham and District University of the Third Age

Bookham and District U3A is a members only organisation but, with the exception of our monthly Tuesday meetings, full members of other U3A’s are welcome to attend activities subject to space. To obtain full information about us including personal contact details, you need to be logged in as a Bookham member.

Our ‘Groups’ tab gives information on all our current groups. The ethos of the U3A is self-help education largely achieved through membership of an interest group. Although the groups may have a leader, the emphasis is on active participation by all members; in many groups, members take turns to lead. Groups are open to all full members of a U3A, although priority is given to Bookham members if there is a waiting list. If you are interested in a subject not listed, or a group is full, please let our Groups’ Coordinator know.

The list of groups can be accessed in a printable form in the following password controlled PDF documents using the current member password which can be found on your membership card. Please note that this password is the one on the 2017/18 membership card.

  • By group name, showing the group leader name and contact number and current vacancy status.  Click here

Please note that these last two documents are password protected - the password is on your membership card.

Our monthly meetings, listed under ‘Diary Dates’, are held on the first Tuesday of each month in the Old Barn Hall, Bookham. Because of space limitations, they are only open to Bookham U3A members, although occasional visitors are welcomed.

A programme of visits to theatres, outings to places of interest and short holidays is organised and can be seen under ‘Outings/Theatre’. These are usually arranged in conjunction with other local U3A’s such as Fetcham. Anne Glyn is the coordinator for these.

A programme of ‘Study Days’ is organised by the Surrey U3A Network and usually take place in the Menuhin Hall. Fuller details can be found on the Network website, which may also include details of other U3A Network or Regional activities. See the Network link under ‘Useful Links’.

Our ‘News’ tab gives the latest news of interest to members and should be checked regularly to ensure you are up to date with any last minute changes, such as to our programme or for information on potential new groups.

The ‘Documents’ section has a growing list of general documents and forms, which can be downloaded or viewed on the screen. The Newsletter is also accessible under this tab as well as a list of groups. Your choice of browser and settings may affect how these documents are shown.
