Events

The past year and a half has been a difficult one for all of us. Many people have been in some sort of isolation for months.

U3As depend for their existence on meeting with other people, so for many of us Zoom has enabled contact with the outside world.

As we have shown, it is possible to be part of a group without leaving your residence. We have continued to produce our newsletter and the contributions made show our members’ amazing creativity.

Of course we have missed our monthly meetings in Homerton library and members being involved in discussions with each other. Human contact is so important. All the same, it has been great that we have kept the monthly meetings and other groups going using Zoom.

The great news is that we have now organised our first "in person" Monthly Meeting, to take place on Tuesday 21st September from 12noon to 3 pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 9ES.
Further details below.

The following events have been planned, in addition to our Group activities taking place over Zoom, outside or other means, for details on these go to the Group page.

Please note that Exploring London is taking a break during August, but Ann and John are already planning outings for September and October.
