We’d love you to join us!


Chiltern u3a members have been learning, staying active and having fun for more than 24 years - experiencing what it means to have a positive later life.

We draw upon our knowledge and experience to teach and learn from each other for pleasure - learning is its own reward; and it's all voluntary, local, social, friendly and low cost. Join Cu3a and make the most out of life.

u3a is a good way of making friends and meeting people. By joining an interest or activity group that interests you, you know that you're meeting people with a shared interest.

Once a month we hold what we call a General Meeting with a speaker, followed by tea, coffee and biscuits, and a chance to get to know yet more Cu3a members.

Take a look at our Groups and Events pages to find out more. You would find plenty to do should you join us now - and if the activity that you would like to join doesn't exist, we can help you to start your own interest group.

The subscription to join Chiltern u3a is £28.00 per member if you pay by bank transfer, or £28.60 if you pay by cheque. This covers Membership until 31 March 2025. (Members on Pension Credits are entitled to a reduced subscription and should contact the Membership Secretary, at u3amembership@chiltern-u3a.org.uk, in confidence, in that connection.)

Gift Aid Declaration

Please say YES to this Gift Aid declaration if you are eligible; it will cost you nothing but save us money.

 “I want the charity to treat all donations and subscription fees that I make from the date of this declaration, until I notify you otherwise, as Gift Aid donations.” 

I understand that I must be a UK taxpayer and pay sufficient Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in each tax year, failing which it is my responsibility to pay any difference.  If my circumstances change so this is no longer true, or I wish to cancel this Declaration at any time, I will notify the Membership Secretary.
