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.

Vaccination Update


When you get your National Invite(Not GP invite) you will be able to choose the Odeon Aylesbury, acting as a pharmacy vaccination centre

Thank you Hazel for this info

Buckinghamshire issued a press release on 14th Jan about the progress with vaccinations in Bucks.

Since then it has been confirmed that The Bowls Centre unit will be operating from Tues 19th and expects to give about 1800 jabs to over 80s during the first week and continue over the next 3/4 weeks.  They have produced a Youtube video showing the process you will go through at the centre when your time comes.  Most GPs will text or ring you and ask you to make an appointment. Some practices are calling people in alphabetical order

Thank to Richard Clark for providing this information and the links

Vaccine Scam

Unfortunately the scammers have jumped on this wagon taking advantage of the fact that many of us are expecting a call. If you get an email/text/call and it is genuine you should never be asked to give any financial information ‘for verification‘. See full details on the BBC Website,,

Understanding Architecture – TVN Course

Mon 25th Jan & Tues 26th Jan

This event proved so popular in September that we are repeating it.
The aim of these presentations is to inform members how to “read” buildings, how to understand what they are seeing and what it symbolises; also to provide a brief history of architectural progress from 18th century to modern times. It is hoped this will enrich your future travels at home and abroad.
