Chairman’s Message

Welcome to the website of Farnham U3A.

We have over 1400 members and about 100 groups, and we hope you find something to interest you, and that you will perhaps be encouraged to try something new. We have classes offering everything from languages, academic subjects, sports and activities, crafts – hopefully something for everyone. If you can’t find a subject to whet your appetite, then we are always interested in forming new groups so please get in touch!

We hold Monthly meetings, usually on Monday afternoons with talks which cover a variety of topics. In addition, Farnham U3A has what we think may be a unique attraction, our series of themed meetings. This year the topic for our study mornings is Africa. Our talks cover science, literature, art, all helping us to learn more about that Continent. They are open to all members, though you need to buy a ticket for special events. With many specialist groups also offering Open Meetings to which all are invited, I feel sure that you will find something to interest you.

We are very fortunate to have many good speakers among our membership, and where we have a gap we bring in knowledgeable contributors from outside the Farnham U3A. We are also very fortunate to be able to hold most of our meetings in the Maltings. Do make use of its café – often a good way of getting to know people from your group, as I have found in my six years in Farnham U3A.

If you wish to keep up to date with our activities we post notices on the board in the Maltings (between the foyer and the cafe) , and send out regular email newsletters giving you details of events and general notices.

We do hope you will enjoy spending some of your time with us, in your third age.
