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.

When I became Chairman I set myself just a couple of goals. Our U3A works extremely well and your committee members and Interest Group leaders do a sterling job. We have recently found new members for the Outings and Talks committees but we still need a few more pairs of hands. So the first objective is to encourage more members to participate in the running of our U3A.  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

Secondly, I hope to see our membership numbers continue to increase. 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 our Group Co ordinator, Maureen Lejeune welcomes ideas for new interest groups and she 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 First World War study group. If you have any more ideas, please let Maureen or me know.

So – 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. If you have an idea for a new Interest Group, contact Maureen Lejeune.

Finally, if any members have ideas that they would like the committee to consider and take forward then I hope you will let me know, either by email at chairman@wallingfordu3a.org or directly at a meeting.

I look forward to keeping in touch,

Enjoy your Thameside University of the Third Age!
