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 Monthly talk is on Thursday 11th July, starting at 2pm. Our speaker is Nick Cook and his talk is entitled Baked Alaska or Mexican Chilly. Contrary to what this might sound like, it's not about food or cooking but, instead, climate change and what it means for the weather. The title refers to a day in July 2019 when Alaska was hot and Mexico cold. This talk covers the history, science and politics of climate change, as well as its effect on our weather.

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 monthly talk and learn more about us, please come along and you will receive a warm welcome.

Best wishes
