Chess Valley U3A
In 2010 the Photographic Group of Chess Valley U3A held an exhibition in the Pavilion Gallery at Chenies Manor on the River Chess and its environs. It later transferred to the Elgiva Theatre.
This year some members of the group have decided that their project will be to photograph Lowndes Park and surrounding area through the year. You are welcome to look at the portfolios of photos below.
Chess Valley U3A was formed in October 2008 and already has approximately 450 members and some 30 activity groups. It has received support from Chiltern District Council and the National Lottery.
Each activity group meets once or twice a month, and programmes are decided by the members of the group. General meetings, with an invited speaker, are held on the second Thursday of each month, in The Broadway Baptist Church, Broadway, Chesham.
A monthly Newsletter is distributed to all members giving full details of each of the groups activities as well as reviews of past events and other items of interest. For further information please go to www.chessvalley-u3a.org.uk
