CORONAVIRUS Epidemic and advice re EVENTS

Based on current Government advice, many forthcoming Events have been CANCELLED, due to the Coronavirus epidemic.

Information on Events that have been CANCELLED is shown in Dates for your Diary below. This list will be regularly updated as the situation evolves and any further Events are Cancelled.

Here are updated details of the 2020 Photographic Competition - the closing date for entries will be Wednesday 30th September, and the results and prize-giving will be on Thursday 15th October.
As it is anticipated that we will not be able to have the presentation of the results at Ealing Green Church this year, this will be done via a Zoom video session - further details on this will follow nearer the time.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the current government advice to 'Stay at Home', we have revised the categories for this year's competition. They will now be Leaves, Hands, Views from my Window, Still Life and, once again, My Favourite Photo.
Entries for the last category only are restricted to those who've never previously won an Ealing U3A photographic prize.
For this year, we will accept entries sent as email attachments and we anticipate that most entrants will use this method. However, for those unable to send their entries this way, you will also be able to send your pictures by post. Details on both methods of entry will be published on this website and also in our regular news-sheet 'U3A Ealing News'

[The categories 'Sports' and 'Trains/Boats/Planes' will be held over for the 2021 competition, and we will allow pictures taken in 2020 to be included for these categories]

Via the LINKS on the right hand side of this page you can see the results and the winning photographs for 2019 and 2018 competitions.

Summer School

London Region of U3As Summer School - CANCELLED

The 2020 Summer School which was due to be held at St Bride Foundation on Tuesday 21st to Thursday 23th July has, unfortunately, been CANCELLED.
This decision will not come as a surprise in view of the government’s clampdown on all social events and venues due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and protective instructions for the over 70s.

The programme was proving very popular, and tickets were selling like hot cakes. LRU3A hope to reconstruct a similar programme next year as the theme ‘The Twenties’ will still be relevant. It’s uncanny how the 2020s decade has begun with a global viral pandemic as did the 1920s. Similarly, we will all be facing huge changes and demands for innovation in all walks of life in the coming decade.

All applicants for this year’s summer school will be emailed and refunds will be issued to everyone as quickly as possible.
LRU3A will advise proposed dates for the 2021 Summer School as soon as possible, in the hope that everyone will save the date.
