Are held at St Oswald’s Church Hall on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 2pm. Refreshments (tea, coffee & biscuits) are available after the speaker with plenty of time to socialize, browse our book stall, find out about study groups or speak to organizers.

Hello all,
We hope you are all managing to stay safe and well and able to keep in touch with family and friends.
With this in mind Croxley U3A are looking at ways of keeping in touch with you on a regular basis. You will have seen that, as well as our quarterly newsletter, we are also trying to keep in touch with you via Croxley Chronicle, the latest issue of which has just gone on the website.
We have also manged to set up Zoom/Skype meetings for some of our Interest Groups which we know many of you have been able to join.
Our Group leaders who have managed to do this will tell you that it hasn’t been without its difficulties or humorous moments. However, with perseverance and patience on all sides we’ve got there!
It is now looking increasing likely that we will not be able to restart our monthly meetings until the first quarter of 2021, depending on how the situation develops. As a result your Committee have met several times online to find a way to reinstate them, albeit remotely.
As a result, we plan to set up Croxley MONTHLY meetings with regular Speakers via Zoom format and hope that you will be able to join us. Details of forthcoming speakers can be found in the July Croxley Chronicles (click the link on the Members’ Area on the website).

First monthly meeting will be set up for 3rd Wednesday in July – 15th July. At 2.00 p.m. We will be sending out reminders and helpful hints on what to expect nearer the time.
Please let us know if you wish to join but are having trouble setting up Zoom meetings format and we will try to offer our assistance.

At the end of the August meeting 19th August we will be holding an abridged AGM, which due to the pandemic had to be postponed from its original date in April. All Committee members that wished or were eligible to have agreed to stand for a further year. The only exception is Paul Wray who in line with the Constitution was required to stand down having completed his term of office. The nomination that has been proposed and seconded is Irene Dubuis.
All proposed committee members seeking re-election, the 2019 annual accounts and the Trustees Report (all of these can be found in the Members Area on the website) will need to be ratified at the AGM: this will be done by means of an online vote using the Zoom ‘poll’ facility (don’t worry, it’s very straightforward. We’ll talk you through it on the day).
We sincerely hope that as many of you as possible will be able to join us (we are not experts so please be patient with us if things don’t go entirely to plan!!!!). We appreciate that not all of our members are familiar or have access to the Internet therefore we are asking if you have friends or fellow members to make them aware of this email. Hopefully it may be possible for them to participate via family or friends.
Fingers crossed and looking forward to seeing you on 15th July.
Croxley U3A Committee
