Wokingham U3A, a registered charity (No 1049995),
was first established in early 1991 by a group of
enthusiasts, and is a member of the Third Age Trust. The
very first meeting to get the U3A up and running was on
28th August 1990; this led to a steering group being
formed on 9th October and the first ever monthly meeting
(which is what it was referred to as) on 15th January
Wokingham U3A receives no direct funding from Central or
Local Government. We are financially independent and
rely solely on our members' subscription income.
Lecturers, guest speakers and administrative staff all
give their services for expenses only.

Well! HOT NEWS!! "HISTORIC PATHWAYS" A new project has begun, to
follow the Riverside Project, as result of a suggestion by the
Berkshire Record Office.
The project involves U3A members, across the Thames Valley
Network, in research into local footpaths and their history,

months and the walks in the nicer weather.
The BRO gives us guidance on how to use the maps and other
material which they hold. Some people might want to do
research and go on the walks; some might want to do one or the

benefit, please pass the information on.
