Groups

TERM DATES
4 October - 10 December 2021

It is understood that the Pandemic is far from over and we do not know where things will stand in October. Some Conveners are booking rooms in the hope that face-to-face meetings can occur in the Autumn Term, whereas others have decided to remain with Zoom meetings. If the government reintroduces restrictions, meetings will revert back to Zoom, other online means, or be abandoned.

For those groups that are planning face-to-face meetings, there will be new guidelines issued relating to health and safety in this Covid era.

Group Activities

Our Groups and their activities are available to members. If you are not a member click on the Membership tab to find out more.

If you have a hobby, a skill or work based knowledge you wish to share with a group of interested people please contact Course Provision Coordinator who will be pleased to hear from you. More information about running new Groups may be found on the About us Page. We can provide you with all the help you require to start a group and currently can provide you with the use of a Zoom license. We are particularly looking for new Groups for the Summer 2021.

Programme

A hard copy of the programme may be selected, downloaded and printed by selecting Programme for Autumn 2021. Please note that this version of the programme was prepared in March 2021 and any updates such as the addition of new Groups will not be included in this dcoument. They are however included on this web site. Due to the size of the file, the programmme may take a few seconds to download.

Please note that two Groups, Badminton and Practical Photography, have been added for the Spring Term since the Programme Booklet was prepared. The Book Circle Group has been withdrawn and the starting date for the Introduction to Buddhism has been moved to 6th May

Timetable

Full details of the Timetable are available at Timetable for Autumn 2021.

Guidance for Conveners/Group Leaders

The u3a Trust has published guidance for Conveners and Group Leaders which outlines some of the considerations related to the establishment and running of Groups. This may be accessed at Conveners Handbook. If required, further guidance on new Groups can be obtained from the Course Provision Coordinator, on existing Groups from the Groups Coordinator and on video conferencing from the Video Conferencing Coordinator.

The u3a Trust also runs online training sessions on using Zoom for Conveners and Group Leaders. Details and booking arrangements may be found at Introduction to Zoom and Hosting Zoom meetings.

Copyright Advice

The u3a is concerned to ensure that copyright is not being infringed when presentations and other material are being used. The u3a's advice on this may be found at Copyright advice for u3a.
