General Meetings

General meetings of Haddenham U3A usually have a guest speaker and from April 2020 will be held on the first Wednesday of each month. Members arrive from 2.15 for a 2.30 start. Meetings usually last for an hour and a half, including time to socialise over a cup of tea.

Guest speakers cover a wide variety of topics of general interest to enable an increased awareness of our locality and our world, embracing history, travel, nature, science and culture, with a balanced programme to meet U3A aims.

We hope you will enjoy our meetings, learn something new, get to know other members, and occasionally volunteer to help out.

In accordance with the Government guidelines, we have cancelled all our normal General Meetings until further notice.

However, we continue to have an interesting programme of talks by Zoom and more members are logging in to enjoy them.

The meetings listed below are by Zoom and must be pre-booked by responding to the notice sent from our database of members.   An invitation will then be sent to your email 24 hours before the event giving details on how to access.

Climate Change Plans for Haddenham

Presented by David O’Hanlon

Haddenham Parish Council is very concerned about the impact of Climate Change. At a meeting on 24th June 2019, the council agreed to declare a Climate Emergency and pledged to make Haddenham carbon neutral by 2030. Since then, work has been ongoing to identify the most impactful changes that Haddenham residents and organisations can make to reduce carbon emissions. Now, the Parish Council is reaching out to community groups across Haddenham to update residents on its plans and how they can get involved.

Joining the Meetings

The General Meetings are open to all members of Haddenham U3A.
