CURRENT U3A ACTIVITIES: All our U3A activities are required to comply with both government guidance and advice from the 3rd Age Trust (the national U3A umbrella). Here is a summary of the current situation:
INTEREST GROUPS: Although most of our interest groups are unable to meet together indoors at the moment, a large proportion have found ways to continue to operate at least in part. An outline of current activities can be found in the table at the end of the Groups page and includes information on Groups activity during the Covid-19 restrictions.
MONTHLY MEETINGS AND TALKS: We are currently unable to hold our usual monthly meetings and talks. Plans are in hand to resume these shortly but initially the talks are likely to be online. Further information on this will be circulated to members directly.
MONTHLY COFFEE MORNINGS: In the light of government guidelines we are also currently unable to hold our monthly coffee mornings for new and potential members.
OUTINGS & OTHER SOCIAL EVENTS: None of our usual outings or social events are currently planned, but we are hoping to reintroduce a full programme as soon as it becomes possible.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING: Our Annual General Meeting has had to be postponed this year and is currently scheduled for December. It is as yet unclear whether the AGM will be able to go ahead then or what format it will take. Further information will be circulated to members directly once the situation is clearer.
