Thameside Wallingford u3a 

is one of the UK’s branches of the University of the Third Age (u3a).


It is located in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.

It started up in 1997 & currently has over 400 lively, friendly and enthusiastic members. Our members are residents of the area who are no longer in full-time work, but wish to remain active & continue to learn during their retirement years. And have fun along the way!

Thameside Moderate Walking group, early Dec, visited the the reconstructed Anglo-Saxon house at Long Wittenham. They walked in two groups of 7 and got some sunshine.
