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 times we had to stop taking new members as we reached capacity but now have vacancies and we are 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. We meet every second Wednesday of the month at Runnymede Hall, Kiln Road, Thundersley. Doors open 1.10pm for a 1.30pm start. However, following lock down restrictions and banning of group meetings, this is in abeyance whilst the Coronavirus crisis continues.
We assist members in setting up interest Groups to enable them to expand their knowledge on a variety of hobbies and pastimes. We 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 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 will be re-booked, if possible, when we are able to continue the meetings.
Our AGM in 2020 was affected by the rules covering large gatherings of people and the social distancing requirement and this was held by postal ballot. The AGM for 2021 will depend on the Covid 19 rules and if our meetings have resumed. Further details will be forthcoming nearer the time.
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 2021/2022 will be renewed from June 2021 and Forms are available from Jan, our Membership Secretary.
