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 30th March 2023 starting at 2pm when our speaker will be Sheryl Roberts presenting Tax, Care and Toyboys. Sheryl is an expert in estate planning and her talk will cover subjects such as 'protecting the family's nest egg', inheritance tax and 'stopping sideways disinheritance' (what can happen if a surviving spouse remarries). This talk complements one given by Gaye Illsley in 2021 on Lasting Powers of Attorney. The venue for this meeting will be the Broadway Baptist Church in Chesham Broadway.

If you are not currently a member of Chess Valley u3a and would like to sample a General Meeting and learn more about us, please come along and you will receive a warm welcome.

Best wishes
