Please read the following extract from our chairman's letter:

" It is with very great regret that I need to inform you that your committee has decided to abandon all major U3A meetings until further notice.

This means that the following events are now cancelled:

1). Dartford U3A Annual Members' Lunch - all those supporting this have already been contacted and will receive a refund.
2). Dartford U3A group Leaders' lunch.
3). Dartford U3A Monthly Meetings: until advice changes.

The announcement from the government implies that this advice will last for some considerable time, several months at least. It must, therefore, be assumed that ALL Monthly U3A meetings are cancelled until I/we (your committee) inform you otherwise.

As U3A activity groups would almost certainly be considered "non-essential" social contact, it is strongly advised that these be abandoned for the duration.

On behalf of the Dartford U3A committee I hope that you all remain well and that our activities can resume at the earliest opportunity."


FORTHCOMING MEETINGS : The diary below shows the originally planned meetings. This gives an idea of the variety of speakers normally invited to talk to us and here is information for when our monthly meetings recommence.

Under normal circumstances

Dartford U3A holds general meetings on the first Tuesday of the month, except August, 2-3.30 pm (doors open 1.45 pm) at St Anselm's Parish Centre, 89 West Hill, Dartford, DA1 2HJ.

There is usually a speaker and it is also an opportunity for up-to-date information to be shared.

The meeting charge is £1 which covers speaker costs and refreshments.

There is ample parking available. Visitors considering membership are welcome. Come and see what we do before deciding to join.
