Local U3A Networks
CHaTTR is a loose grouping of local U3As – Chinnor, Haddenham, Thame and District, Greater Thame and Ridgeway. The Chairs of these U3As hold regular meetings to share best practice, and CHaTTR occasionally organises Study Days.
Some Interest Groups are ‘shared’ between these U3As:Computing run by Chinnor for members of all CHaTTR U3As
Digital Photography run by Greater Thame
Earth Matters run jointly by Haddenham and Greater Thame
Note that members of Haddenham U3A may also attend Interest Groups of any of the other U3As, as long as there are spaces. Members should approach the Leader of the Group in which they are interested.

He has a wide range of expertise and awards, including an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours in 2021 for services to the NHS during the COVID-19 pandemic. This talk will cover the development of anaesthesia in all its forms from early beginnings to the 21st century. It will cover the medicines and equipment involved, the people you will see and those you won’t and address many of the entirely reasonable concerns patients have about the procedure.
