Thundersley

Welcome

Thundersley is situated on the main A13 from London to Southend, and has a history going back to the Doomsday Book. Several historical buildings are still present in the neighbourhood.

Thundersley U3A was formed in August 2013 and has capacity for 260 members. In recent periods it has been necessary to stop taking on new members but now we have some vacancies and we will be pleased to welcome newcomers. Please contact Jan our Membership Secretary for full details and current availability. Jan can be contacted via the link on the Contact page and she will be pleased to help you. In normal times, we meet every second Wednesday of the month normally at Runnymede Hall, Kiln Road, Thundersley. Doors open 1.10 for a 1.30pm start. However following lock down restrictions and banning of group meetings, all these aspects are in abeyance while the Corona virus crisis continues.

We strive to assist members in setting up interest Groups to enable them to expand their knowledge on a variety of hobbies and pastimes. In furtherance of these objectives we have conducted a Membership Survey a copy of which can be viewed by following the link on this page. At most monthly meetings we have an interesting guest speaker and details of forthcoming talks are included on the Events page. At present because of the rules to curb the spread of Covid 19 we are unable to meet and guest speakers and presenters have postponed and will be re-booked if possible when the outbreak has been brought under control.

The holding of our AGM this year is also affected by the rules covering large gatherings of people and the social distancing requirement and we are looking at the precise arrangements needed.

A copy of the revised Constitution of the Thundersley U3A can be viewed by following the link at the right hand side of this page.

The annual subscription is £20 per year which includes your Third Age Matters magazine should you wish to receive it plus tea/coffee and biscuits at main Meetings. Renewals for 2020/21 will be due soon and Forms are available from Jan, our Membership Secretary. If needed the form can also be downloaded via the links from this page.

You may find it interesting to visit the Links page and look at the U3A report "Learning not lonely" which explores our approach to ageing and the opportunities offered by the U3A movement.
