Wendover u3a during Covid
Wendover u3a is continuing to be active during the Covid pandemic. Main meetings are taking place via Zoom with over 90 members taking part last month. Many groups are keeping in touch via Zoom meetings, WhatsApp and telephone contact. The Newspaper provides links to important information about vaccinations and the latest Covid guidelines as well as details of events organised by Thames Valley Network and Third Age Trust, and is a forum for groups to share what they have been doing. Use the link buttons at the top of the page to learn more. The committee are also keeping in touch with members through the Chairman’s Monthly letter which is emailed or hand-delivered to all members

The u3a (University of the Third Age) is a UK movement of people in their third age, no longer in full time work, who come together to learn, stay active and have fun in a friendly and informal environment. The movement includes over 400,000 u3a members in more than 1,000 u3as and is continuing to grow every day. Members of local u3as draw upon their knowledge and experiences to teach and learn from each other and share educational, creative and leisure activities in a friendly and informal environment.

Wendover u3a was established in 2000 and remains a thriving organisation with over 400 members. We have about sixty different Study Groups run by members and meeting regularly in venues within the Wendover area. We are always open to suggestions for new groups and welcome the involvement of all members as this is what makes Wendover such a flourishing and popular u3a. All members are welcome at our Main Meeting which is held on the first Wednesday of each month, in St. Mary's Church, Wendover. Members can also take part in regular outings organised by the Travel Team. To learn more about our activities please use the buttons on the page top Menu.

A Newsletter is published periodically giving details of what groups have been up to and information about forthcoming events. It can be collected from the church at the Main Meeting or accessed via the Newsletter button on the top Menu. Members also receive the "Third Age Matters" magazine which tells more about what is happening in the organisation nationally and can elect to sign up for the Third Age Trust digital monthly newsletter.
