Thameside Wallingford u3a is one of the UK’s branches of the University of the Third Age (u3a) and is located in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.
Thameside Wallingford branch 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/family responsibilities, but wish to remain active & continue to learn during their retirement years. And have fun along the way
Interest Groups are the heart of the U3A movement. Basically, a group of members identifies a subject or activity in which they have a common interest and arrange to meet regularly to enjoy this interest in the company of others. No qualifications are required or offered, however some members may have specific knowledge or expertise in a particular subject. Most group meetings are held in members’ homes, this could be the home of the Group Convener or may be rotated among members. Those groups with special requirements for space and facilities hire community rooms for which each member pays a small fee. Have a look at the Groups page for more.
(There are two u3a branches in this area. The smaller one, Wallingford u3a, is based in Crowmarsh)
