Welcome to the Bookham & District U3A Website

************AGM – 5th Oct 2021***********

The 28th AGM of Bookham and District U3A will be held at the Old Barn Hall on Tuesday October 5th at 2.30pm.

The Agenda, Election of Committee Members, Minutes of the previous AGM held on Zoom in April 2021, and a Proposed amendment to the constitution to allow for virtual AGM/SGM’s are available under Documents/Policy, Admin, Systems Guides or click HERE.

************Senior Moments***********

The August edition of Senior Moments has been loaded to the website and can be read by clicking on Documents/Senior Moments on the menu bar above. Those of you who read the edition when advised by email may have noted issues with certain pages. These have been improved in the current version. A detailed  supplement to the article on electric cars can be found in Documents/Other Documents.

***********Surrey Network Study Days********

The Study Days at the Yehudi Menuhin school are restarting in September. A new page providing details of these events can be found under the 'Documents' tab in the menu system or can be accessed by clicking HERE. Please note that it is intended to allow members to access these events from home. 

Details of other activities undertaken by Surrey U3A Network can be found by accessing their website HERE.

****************Membership Renewal**********

Yearly membership renewal is now complete, and we are pleased to say that over 500 members have renewed.  Thank you all for your support over this difficult time.  If proof of membership is required by another U3A, you can use the renewal email, which should have all the relevant information.

Several groups have managed to continue using Zoom and most groups are restarting meeting when they feel comfortable under the current regulations, although there has obviously been some changes in how groups operate.

We are also accepting new members and applications can be done online by completing the form on the Join tab. If you would like more information before joining, please feel free to contact either the Membership Secretary or Groups Co-ordinator.  Email addresses can be found on the Committee tab.

*************Chairman's Newsletter************

Each month a number of members seem not to receive the Chairman's newsletter. In some cases it is found in spam, in others it seems to have gone walkabouts, never to be seen again. The newsletter is also available in the 'Documents' section as this is an easier mechanism to retain the format of the original.  A copy of the September newsletter has been loaded HERE.

***************Book Groups 1/2*****************

Book groups 1 and 2 have updated their group pages on the website with details the books read during 2020 and subsequently discussed on Zoom meetings.

Group Administrators - if you want to improve the presentation of your group page please contact the Webmaster.
