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.

Our next General Meeting is on Thursday 14th October 2023 starting at 2pm when our speaker will be Emily Yarrow and her topic My Life as an Opera SingerEmily has recently moved back to Chesham and has been a professional singer for over 20 years. Her talk is an entertaining one about her background and training and the various jobs she has had over the years, all illustrated with the appropriate songs. Emily recently had a show on a Saga cruise ship, which can be seen on YouTube; most entertaining. The venue for this meeting is the Broadway Baptist Church in Chesham Broadway, which is wheelchair-accessible and equipped with a hearing loop.

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
