WEBSITE NEWS: You may or may not know that over Christmas all U3A websites using the provider that Exeter U3A uses was out of action due to a malicious attack. The Problem has now been solved and all is working again.

HOWEVER: ALL group conveners/leaders who administer their own group's pages now need new passwords to access the site. IF you usually administer your group's page but cannot get onto the website to do so, or would like to to administer your group's page (add text and pictures to it) in the future then please contact your two Web Administrators, Dave Parsons and Ivan Andrews via the Contacts page (click the word contacts). Thank you.
