NEW - 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.

Annual General Meeting - Tuesday 16th February 2021
Our February main meeting and AGM will be a Zoom meeting. Having an AGM is a requirement of our constitution and we must run it successfully if we are to continue operating as a U3A group. We will start with a speaker at 2.30pm and the AGM will follow immediately afterwards at 3.15pm.
The documentation for the AGM will be sent out as a separate mailing to all members. We do need your (Zoom) attendance at the AGM so that we have a quorum in order for the meeting to be valid.
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.
Government guidance is now being updated frequently, including decisions on which COVID alert level applies to specific areas. The committee is monitoring the Government guidance and U3A advice on a day to day basis and will provide updates when required. Group Leaders are being kept informed and will liaise with their members regarding activities. Please keep checking the group pages on this website for the latest information.
The following guidance applies to all members:
• Prior to participating in any interest group members must undertake their own personal assessment to enable them to decide and be confident that they should attend. A link to a Personal Assessment Checklist can be found on this page.
• Members must inform the Group Leader immediately should they contract COVID-19 or show any signs of the virus after participating in a group activity.
