HomeUncategorizedFrom our Chairman – Paul Booker


If you are a new or prospective member of the Thameside Wallingford U3A – thank you for reaching thus far on our web site. If you are already a member – then welcome – your committee and I hope you find the site useful and easy to use. We hope you become a regular visitor.

If you are enjoying your U3A – either attending the Speaker Meetings, Coffee Mornings or groups – please consider offering a hand to your committee.The time commitment is not great and the work is fun and interesting. So, if you would like to know more please email me at chairman@wallingfordu3a.org

Our membership numbers continue to increase, so we must be doing something right!. New members bring new ideas and new interests and help share the load of running the U3A. This is a useful place to point out that we welcome ideas for new interest groups and will provide all due assistance in setting them up. We have recently introduced two Lunch Clubs, a poetry reading group and we are looking at starting a Military History study group.

If you have any more ideas, please let me know. if you would like to learn more about helping our Outings or Talks committees, or perhaps the main management committee please let me know, by email at Chairman@wallingfordu3a.org or chat to me at the coffee morning or Speaker meeting.

I’m about to come to the end of my duties as Chairman of the Thameside Wallingford U3A. It has been a very enjoyable two years [thanks to the support of an excellent committee] that seem to have passed in a flash. I have made many new friends and learnt a great deal about our organisation. Our new Chairman will start work in May and I know he will have tremendous support from all the members. Its certain too that he will relish his time as Chairman as much as I have.

I look forward to keeping in touch,

Enjoy your Thameside University of the Third Age!
