Welcome to Aylesbury Vale U3A website. Here you will find the latest news about membership, regular meetings and the groups that are run from our U3A. We have a regular monthly meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at The Bowls Centre at Stoke Mandeville Stadium where we can find out what’s going on in the various groups, meet up with friends, as well as hear informative and entertaining talks by a variety of speakers. The 3rd Tuesday of alternate months we have a coffee morning at the Watermead Inn where we can get together in a more informal way and chat over cups of tea or coffee. We pride ourselves on being a very friendly group of people who like to come together to learn something new whilst making new friends and learning new skills. So if this sounds like you do get in touch.

Delivery Scam

Gay would like to share this warning with you and we know that she is not the only one who has received this or something similar, not always from DPD. This time of year we really need to be alert to these scams

I received an email  this morning from DPD saying they had tried to deliver a parcel twice (at  the time given for today we were indoors and nobody knocked ), and the other two of further instructions which were trying to get me to reveal my bank details by making a payment. The website looks very convincing. I phoned DVD customer services and they said they had had numerous calls, it is a scam and DVD never sends emails.

She has shared the very convincing documentation with us – have a look – might you have fallen for it?
