Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

THERE was an ‘over­whelm­ing re­sponse’ to an in­au­gu­ral U3A meet­ing.

More than 300 peo­ple at­tended a meet­ing to launch a Chal­fonts Uni­ver­sity of the Third Age on Wed­nes­day, March 11.

Pub­lic­ity or­gan­iser for the group, Tri­cia Reeve, said: “An amaz­ing 300 plus at­tended and over 200 be­came mem­bers and reg­is­tered their pref­er­ences for the dif­fer­ent groups avail­able. Truly over­whelmed by the pos­i­tive re­sponse. The favourite groups were walk­ing, theatre trips, photography and Mah Jong [a Chi­nese game].”

The first monthly meet­ing will be on Wed­nes­day, April 8 at 2pm in Chal­font St Peter Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Gravel Hill when non-mem­bers will have an­other chance to join. The speaker will be Alan Copeland talk­ing on the Chilterns. Email info. chal­fontsu3a@gmail.com for more de­tails.
