The government have now relaxed Covid restrictions. As I write this the number of cases is increasing again, but as things stand, we are clearly now permitted to meet face-to-face, so our monthly meeting on Thursday 9th September will be at the Flavel with the usual timing of 10.00 for a 10.30 start. Our talk is to be “The Human Face of Dartmoor Prison” by Philip Barker.

The committee continues to meet monthly (by Zoom up to now), and we review the position regarding meetings and group activities every month. We bear in mind government policy, advice from U3A Head Office, attendance at meetings, parking etc, and we will monitor the position closely. It is almost impossible to make the “right” decision from all points of view, but members’ safety and well-being is always uppermost in our minds.

I shall be writing to you all individually, Members and Conveners, to pass on advice from HO u3a regarding safe guarding against Covid and the Flavel’s guidance on their procedures. As we look forward to resumption of activities this Autumn, I hope everyone will enjoy and benefit from their membership - “learn, laugh, live”!

Please refer to groups section on this website to see which groups are meeting up, physically or on Zoom and which groups are suspended until further notice.

For a light-hearted and funny take on the current situation please see Keep Smiling written by the Chair and Newsletter Editor of the Wanstead and Woodford u3a linked on the right and all 35 editions on their web page can be found on the Midhurst u3a site.
