U3A Day – ideas please.

On Wednesday 3rd June 2020 our U3A intends to support the national U3A Day by having an event or events within the city. Ideas of possible activities that will advertise and promote what Lichfield U3A does and could do in the future are invited for consideration.

Please think what we could possibly do – as innovative and inclusive as you can dream up - that will raise the profile of Lichfield U3A within the community and also remove many of the misconceptions about Third Agers and U3A in particular that people in general have.

Please contact J.Thorpe with your ideas by clicking onto the CONTACT page and leaving a message to J. Thorpe.
