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 Meadowcroft and Quarrendon Community Centre 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.

Local Walk Monday 13th May- Wendover

A walk in the surrounds of Wendover before they all disappears under HS2.
Meeting point and lunch venue – The Shoulder of Mutton near Wendover Station
The walk will take us along the foothills of Coombe Hill (we will not be climbing it!), across Ellesborough Golf Course to the Grade II listed Farmhouse at Wellwick Farm, then back along part of the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal.

Inevitably around Wendover there will be some hills on this walk but none too steep or long. There are also some easy stiles. It will be about a 5 mile walk.

We meet in the car park of the Shoulder of Mutton at 9.45 for a 10.00 start. We need to select our menu choices before we set out. There is a lunch menu or main menu to choose from. It would be useful if you could look beforehand and choose.The Shoulder is one of the Chef & Brewer chain so if you have offers/coupons bring them with you. Sign up at the meeting or contact Local Walks
