*NEW* - Update on Covid 19 Arrangements for Meetings and Trips
As a result of the Government relaxation of Covid rules it is now up to individuals to take appropriate precautions based on their own risk assessment. The Committee asks members who attend face-to-face meetings to consider the risks and take appropriate measures to protect themselves and others. This includes minimising contact with others and wearing face masks when circulating in crowded spaces.

We are now starting to plan some events over the next few months. These events will appear on the Events/Trips page so please keep checking. As you would expect, most of these events will be subject to any changes in Government rules and guidance on Covid 19.
u3a Thames Valley Network
We are now members of the Thames Valley Network of u3a's. This means that any of our members can take advantage of all the events and information provided by the Network. Full details of the events they offer are posted on their website and they have a comprehensive programme of speakers via Zoom. The website can be accessed at u3a Thames Valley Network and select Study Days for the diary of events.
Booking for one of their events/talks is simple and many of them are free of charge. Some have a small charge to cover the speaker costs.
Joining Zoom meetings
Many more U3A meetings are now open to all our members. If you wish to join a meeting please make sure you are aware of the arrangements for joining. Help is available in the form of instructions and tutorial videos under 'Links' on this page. In particular, please make sure you are familiar with the Instructions for joining a Zoom meeting.
Talks on Zoom
Some of the main meeting and group talks by speakers on Zoom have been recorded and posted on the website for members to view if they missed out on the day. These video presentations can be accessed under 'links' on the relevant group/main meeting website page. These presentations will only be available for a limited time period.
Keeping in touch with members
The committee are concerned that some members are really missing out on social contact during this difficult time. If anyone would like to meet up with another member, but not sure how to make contact, please get in touch with Shirley who will try to help arrange something. Shirley can be contacted via the 'general enquiries' button on the contact page.
