Joining & Renewing

CIO Constitution 12 March 2018

Special Notice for those wishing to join after 1 July 2018

During August there are no open and few group meetings. All activities resume in September and renewal of subscription for the next U3A year is due on 1st October. Either you can defer your membership until then or you can opt to pre-pay next year’s sub now and join group activities straightaway. Our fee starting from 1 October is £15 per member or £11.50 if you belong to another U3A and are paying its full subscription.

If you opt to pre-pay, remember to ignore renewal notices issued during Sep/Oct months.

To Join Buckingham U3A download:

Application Form (Word file or PDF file)

Post the form to membership secretary or alternatively, you may email a scanned copy after signing the form to

Renewal of Membership

Please renew before 1 October 2018 and no later than 15 October. Individual fees are £15 per annum, however if you are a member of another U3A and are paying its full fee then it reduces to £11.50.

We strongly recommend that you set up a standing order with your bank to pay us regularly on time on 1 st October. This order can be cancelled or changed any time you wish, saves you posting or queueing at renewal times and is secure because we do not have any access to its details. If you prefer to pay by direct bank transfer then our bank details are on the standing order form. Please use the link below to download and print at home the standing order form to take to your bank.

Handling cheques or cash is administratively very time-consuming and unnecessarily stretches the renewal process over several months unless all such payments are received before the end of September.

Gift Aid Donations

If you are a tax payer; using gift aid costs you nothing and means that we can reclaim 25% of your subscription as tax from HMRC which helps us to keep your fees low. Fill in the application form (see above) and return the form to the membership secretary after signing the gift aid consent.
