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 miss 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 to keep the monthly meetings and other groups going using Zoom.

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.

We had hoped to organise a Monthly Meeting where we can meet in person, possibly outside. This continues to be discussed by the Committee and if members have any suggestions, please get in touch with our Chair. With regards to the Monthly Meetings, these are currently on hold and we are looking for help with organising the Monthly Meetings; if you like to volunteer to help the Committee with this, please contact our Chair.

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