Coronavirus Pandemic

During the pandemic the Third Age Trust have provided useful guidance to U3A's on if, when and how U3A activities may resume following the initial lockdown. As this has been continually changing within each region, and depends on the Tier Somerset has been placed in, it has not been possible to keep abreast of the guidance on this website. However, in the autumn the Trust published a simpler table of restrictions and the latest version of this can be seen by clicking LATEST GUIDANCE FOR U3A .

Should you wish to view or download further U3A Covid Guidance, Checklists, Risk Assessment documents/forms please go to Support for U3A's on the Third Age Trust website by clicking THIRD AGE TRUST ADVICE.


The following letters are from our Chairman, Roy Howells, regarding the suspension of U3A activities and were written in the spring as we entered Lockdown.
