Bookham and District U3A

Welcome to the Bookham & District U3A Website

***********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**********

Membership renewal will be take place during July 2021. Details on how this will be managed have been issued by email and in Senior Moments.

Please remember:

  1. Bank transfer is the preferred payment method
  2. Please make sure you use the payment reference provided in the email you will receive
  3. If you are paying by bank transfer, there is no need to return any paperwork to the membership secretary
  4. There are no membership cards.  If required by another U3A, proof of membership is the email you receive after your renewal has been processed - print it and keep it safe!

*************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. It is, of course, the mechanism for booking attendance at the fortnightly Zoom meetings. As an alternative method, the links are also included in the 'Diary' section of the website, and the actual newsletter has been available in the 'News' section.  The newsletter will now be included in the 'Documents' section as this is an easier mechanism to retain the format of the original.  A copy of the July 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.

The table below shows upcoming meetings open to all members. The details of how to register are provided in the Chairman's monthly email and is a two stage process. The registration link will provide, by email,  a second link which is the link to be used on the day. A reminder is sent on the day before the meeting. Until further notice these meetings will be hosted on Zoom use on the day. In case the monthly email is missed, the registration link will in addition be provided in the detail section of the event - click on the blue event name in the table.

Group events are shown either on the group page or on the Diary page.
