During the meeting members can meet Group Convenors to find out more about Wendover u3a’s various study groups and activities. Wendover u3a currently has about 60 study groups offering a wide range of subjects to learn and enjoy. Members can also sign up for regular outings and holidays organised by the Travel Team.

We have invited speakers on a wide variety of topics and dates of forthcoming meetings and speakers are listed below.

Parking at the Church

Parking near the Church is restricted due to the narrowness of Church Lane from the London Road end and large vehicles often have to use the Lane to deliver goods to the school. To ease congestion on Main Meeting days, we suggest that a one-way system is used i.e. entering Church Lane from the London Road and when leaving the meeting, to continue in the same direction to eventually turn left into Hale Lane to drive back into Wendover.

For members with accessibility needs, there is space opposite the Lych Gate where up to four cars may be parked. If no space is available, drive a little further down Church Lane where there is a right-hand turn into a car park situated at the back of the Church. This car park provides limited space for parking and easy access into the Church.

Our Monthly Speakers are:

The Life of Eva Braun – Victim or Contriver’ will present the story of the woman who devoted her life to Hitler from first meeting him in a shop through the years leading to his rise to power in Germany. While listening to the talk the audience will be asked to consider whether Eva was a victim or a contriver in her story.
Wed Nov 2nd AGM & Polio My Journey- Wendy Bridge
Wed Dec 7th Hearing Dogs for the Deaf- Mandy Phillips

Hearing Dogs for the Deaf is a UK charity providing training for assistance dogs to enhance confidence, companionship and independence for a deaf person. Dogs are trained to alert deaf people to important and life-saving sounds they would otherwise miss – sounds that many people take for granted like the doorbell, alarm clock and even danger signals like the fire alarm. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives and can even save them.
