In normal times, all our monthly meetings apart from June are held at Runnymede Hall, Kiln Road, Thundersley and take place every 2nd Wednesday of the month. For all monthly meetings doors open at approximately 1.10pm for a 1.30pm start.
At most meetings we have a speaker either from outside or one of our members will stand up and talk on anything which we feel will assist others to broaden their outlook and further their education.

However, in 2020 the Corona virus pandemic has caused changes affecting every aspect of all of the activities of our U3A and much uncertainty.

Guest Speakers at our monthly meetings were to have been as set out below but in the circumstances all will have to be postponed.

Our Speaker Secretary Beryl Sheppard can be contacted via either the Contacts page or the Suggestions Box at monthly meetings and will be interested to hear any comments you may have regarding speakers and your suggestions for future talks which may be of interest.

Further information will be provided on this page as required.


We normally have trips at regular intervals throughout the year. However in 2020
the impact of Coronavirus has meant that most have been cancelled.
Due to the restrictions on movement and the pressing need to observe social distancing in response to Covid-19 it has become necessary for trips to be cancelled and where applicable refunds will be arranged as soon as possible.

Trips originally arranged are as follows:
Mystery Tour was to take place on March 24th - cancelled
Romford Dogs was to take place on April 23rd - now cancelled
Sandringham was to take place on May 27th - now cancelled
RHS Wisley was due to take place on June 26th - now cancelled
Weald and Downland was due to take place on July 19th - now cancelled
Hever Castle was due to take place on 18th August - now cancelled

It is hoped that it will be possible to re-book in 2021

Carole Simmonds our Trip Adviser would be pleased to receive any suggestions you may have regarding U3A trips to places, towns, shows, gardens or other events which may be of interest to the membership. Carole may be contacted via email by clicking the appropriate button on the Contact page.

Please note that you have to be a fully paid up member of Thundersley U3A in order to go on any of the trips organized.

Please also remember the payment rules when booking trips:

Payment for trips can be taken from the month following sign up and MUST be paid in full two months before the trip. When signing up for any trip in future, the payment dates will be displayed on the sign up table and payment MUST be received by the date given.

This is to allow for payments that have to be made to venues in advance.

Please also note that all prices include the driver's tip.

We have added a new pick up point at SEEVIC so please bear this in mind for future trips.


A Facebook page has been established strictly for the use of Thundersley U3A Members only. The intention is that it can be used as another means of communication within the Membership.
