Important 2021 subscriptions for current members

At a committee meeting of Buckingham & District U3A in July 2020, it was decided that in the light of the coronavirus lockdown having deprived us of most of our opportunities for meeting up, we would roll all membership subscriptions made for 2019-20 over to also cover the year 2020-21.

Could you therefore please cancel your standing order for the coming year and apply for it to start again on 1st October 2021.

Please do this promptly, as if you forget, we will have to deem any inadvertent over-payments to be donations, as the admin involved in refunding payments will be too time-consuming. If you normally pay by bank transfer or cheque, this will not be a problem.

New Membership Cards for the year 2020-2021 will be sent out on 1st October. If you do not receive one, it may be because you forgot to pay for the current year. If so, I would be happy to process your payment and put it into next year.

All new memberships will be processed and charged as normal.

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 2021. 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 but you must advise us of its name and your membership number for that organisation.

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 it.

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.
