Bourne End & District is a new U3A that started in March 2018 and already has over 300 members. The impetus to form a U3A serving Bourne End originated among the members of Marlow U3A. This U3A had many more members than it could comfortably cope with (over 800 in fact), and many of them lived in our area. So in Autumn 2017 a small launch planning team was set up to launch the new U3A, and the Launch Meeting was planned for January 23rd 2018.
To join the U3A, download the membership form and follow the instructions. If you are already a member you can keep up to date here with all the current news.
The U3A has a steering committee, who will hold their posts until the AGM in April 2019. They will then stand for election, if they wish, for a period 3 years as an executive committee. We were lucky to have enough volunteers to form the Steering Committee. However should a post interest you, do chat to anyone on the committee.
We have a wide variety of interest groups, that number will keep growing with your ideas and enthusiasm. There are over 40 groups, they are all listed with day and meeting venue and time. Click on one of the areas in the list on the right.
Our monthly meeting is where members can keep up to date with current news and have time to meet other members. Also at the meeting there is a speaker for which the subject list for the year is very varied, hopefully something for everyone. We are affiliated to the Third Age Trust.
