|IT’S (NEARLY) CHRISTMAS!|
|TUESDAY 7 DECEMBER at 2:00pm in St Mary’s Church, Great Dunmow||Your u3a will be celebrating with a live Concert by the combined Rock Choirs of Dunmow, Braintree, Sudbury, Chelmsford and Colchester. After 20 months of ‘virtual’ singing (and, incidentally, recording online for the charity Mental Health Foundation a fundraising song which reached ➤No 1 in the music streaming charts last Christmas!), the Rockies will be singing together live for the first time this year, exclusively for Dunmow u3a, in our impressive Parish Church.|
|Please email ➤Mike Best with your name(s) and membership number(s) if you are coming, as this will help us plan the free refreshments.|
A Note from the Chair
Well it's nearly Christmas and we will soon be welcoming a New Year. Dunmow u3a now has nearly 600 members and I hope that next year we will be able to offer a full programme of events. Groups are popular and some are full so we are having to set ups more. None of this can happen without support from you, the members. Thank You.
The national u3a has also been hard at work and has developed a new initiative called Member Link to support u3as and their members to keep talking and learning together, much of which we have been doing this past year. https://u3a.org.uk/member-link

Is your Group meeting online?
A number of our Groups have been regularly ‘meeting’ virtually using Zoom. Meetings using your own free Zoom account are limited to 40 minutes duration, but Dunmow u3a has purchased licenses which enable us to hold longer meetings (up to 24 hours long, if you really must!). Talk to your Group Leader if you think it would be useful for your Group to meet via Zoom
