Join the Goring Gap u3a
The Goring Gap u3a is an exciting self-help movement for retired or semi-retired people who live in the Goring Gap. It offers the opportunity to pursue learning for sheer enjoyment and for its own sake. It is a self-funded Educational Charity.
Not to be confused with the protected gap between Goring-by-Sea and Ferring, the Goring Gap is the narrow valley, occupied by the River Thames, between the Chiltern Hills and the Berkshire Downs. It is approximately 10 miles (16 km) upstream of Reading and 27 miles (43 km) downstream of Oxford. The river here delimits Berkshire from Oxfordshire. The twin villages of Goring and Streatley face each other across the river at the heart of the gap.
If you are retired or semi-retired, live in Goring or Streatley, or the surrounding villages and communities, and seek to come together with like-minded people to share knowledge and experience, learn new skills or more about your local area and get to know a wider circle of interesting people then you have come to the right place.
