Groups gives information on all our current groups. The ethos of the U3A is self-help education largely achieved through membership of an interest group. Although the groups may have a leader, the emphasis is on active participation by all members; in many groups, members take turns to lead. Groups are open to all full members of a U3A, although priority is given to Bookham members if there is a waiting list. If you are interested in a subject not listed, or a group is full, please let our Groups’ Coordinator know. Members can log in and use the system to apply to join groups, or their waiting list if the group is full. The four tabs show the groups in four different ways:-

  • List in Group name order.
  • Summary by category.
  • Summary by day.
  • Groups with Vacancies.

Our monthly meetings, listed under Diary, are held on the first Tuesday of each month in the Old Barn Hall, Bookham at 14:30. Because of space limitations, they are mainly open to Bookham U3A members, although visitors are welcomed.

A programme of visits to theatres, outings to places of interest and short holidays is organised and can be seen under Diary. These are usually arranged in conjunction with other local U3A’s such as Fetcham.
