Around Chesham by Lalage Smyth, member of the Photography and Digital Imaging Groups
Welcome to the website of Chess Valley u3a
Operating in and around Chesham in Buckinghamshire, we offer a wide range of activities for those in their ‘third age’, when they are no longer working full time and are able to pursue other interests.
Our members take part in activities ranging from Art to Wildlife, with books, dinghy sailing, French, history and a lot more in between.
We also arrange visits to places of interest and, each month, have a General Meeting, open to all members, with a very diverse variety of interesting speakers.
Our next General Meeting is on Thursday 10th June, at 2pm, when Ian Keable will present Charles Dickens: Conjurer. This meeting will be preceded by our 2021 AGM. For the time being, our General Meetings take place using Zoom video conferencing.
If you are not a member of Chess Valley u3a, and would like to sample a General Meeting, please contact me using firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the Zoom link.
Special arrangements during the COVID-19 pandemic
From Monday 17th May, groups of up to six people or two households of any size can meet indoors and this may enable some of our smaller Activity Groups to resume face-to-face meetings. Larger groups can also meet indoors if they fall into the category of organised sport/exercise. Many of our Groups have continued to meet using Zoom and other social media. More information about what is happening can be found in the ‘Groups’ pages of this website and also in our newsletter, which can be found under the ‘Members’ tab.
In the meantime, best wishes and stay safe.
Chair, Chess Valley u3a
