Alison Williams, the Groups Coordinator, pulls together here news from around our interest groups. Please get in touch if you have anything you would like to add, or if you would like support as we all get used to the latest advice on Resuming Group Activities. (11/08/21)

Help to run Hybrid Meetings

If some of your Group members are unable to join you in person have you considered holding hybrid meetings. A small discussion or reading group could have several members meeting in person and one pc connecting to the other members by zoom. It can also be used for larger numbers but may require a bit more technology and knowhow.

The London Region u3a's are therefore running drop in sessions for members via Zoom, to learn about the support that is available, raise questions and request advice on alternative ways of running u3a meetings.

Sessions are running every Wednesday from September 8th to January 26th 2022 at 1.00pm to 2.00pm. For the link please contact the Groups Co-ordinator or Website team 15.09.2021

Updates from interest groups

Many Evesham u3a groups have resumed face-to-face meetings including:

Any more? Please contact Alison Williams.

Many groups continue online, e.g. with Zoom, and are looking at meeting again in the autumn. If your group needs help to re-start Alison Williams has a team of members to support you. No issue too small or too concerning, you do not need to solve problems on your own! (11/08/21)

News from interest groups is posted frequently on Facebook

We have a Public Facebook group for anyone to visit, where the Committee and groups post news about activities in Evesham and District as well as some news from u3a around the country.

For Evesham u3a members there is the private Evesham and District u3a Facebook group page. Let us know what you are up to, post your pictures, add something you find interesting or funny, comment on what you see, whatever.

These are your Facebook groups and are open to all current Evesham and District u3a Members. Send in a request to join - and if you are not sure how to do things on Facebook please ask for help. (11/08/21)
