Please bring a reusable coffee cup to the Main Meeting

Please note that these meetings are only open to members of Wendover U3A.

To reduce the risk of congestion around the church, please could you help by adopting an unofficial one way system in Church Lane on Main Meeting days.

Therefore, please drive into Church Lane from the London Road and leave by continuing on down Church Lane and left into Hale Road to return to the village.

Car Parking at the Church

There is a very limited space for parking near the church, please avoid the areas that are coned off or have signs saying No Parking.

As large lorries have to come down this narrow lane to deliver to the school may we suggest for your own benefit that passengers are dropped off prior to you parking as near as possible to the hedge.

Alternative Parking

There is alternative parking at the top of the cricket ground off the Witchell which is just a short stroll from the church either across the Witchell and Hampden Meadow or along the London Road and down Chapel Lane and on to the concrete path across Hampden Meadow.

Thank you

The Speakers' Programmes are available from the back of the church at our monthly meetings.

Dates for your Diary
Wed Dec 4th The Transformation of St Pancras
Nigel Lowey

Our speaker had an amateur interest in St. Pancras over ten years, which led to him to getting further involved and being described as an historian of the building.

St. Pancras was a 14-year-old Christian boy who was martyredin Rome in AD304 by the Emperor Diocletian.  In Britain he is better known as a railway station. This talk is for anyone with an interest in history, world-class architecture, elegant engineering, or a great story; it describes how the fantastic mid-Victorian Gothic railway cathedral came to be built, and how the long-neglected building underwent a breath taking transformation.
