Events

One thing that the current crisis has stopped is our monthly meeting with a speaker to entertain us. As part of keeping Dunstable U3A active your committee has decided to try adding an online speaker presentation to the list of current activities. The details of the speaker and the instructions for watching it are given below.
We hope you enjoy it. If you do, we will repeat it.

Stay safe.
