Group contact - Mike Stringer

Introduction
Our group has been running since March 2018, we are keen on a mix of visits and speakers. Visits will be during the better weather, with speakers over the Winter months.

Our aim is to arrange visits to sites where we can have a private tour with a dedicated guide. This will hopefully give us insights into historic venues that the public don’t usually get to see and hear about.

Our trips use a mix of private cars, mini buses and public transport, with trips generally starting from West Maldon Community Centre, which is where we hold our speaker sessions.

Speaker Programme
Since lockdown in March 2020, we have been running speaker sessions through Zoom. Originally, this was to cover the Autumn and Winter period, but we extended the programme through to the end of June.

Future Plans
A number of dates have been earmarked for future events, running to the end of March 2022. We will have another set of talks over the Winter period. The dates are included on our events list. Trips out will hopefully resume in the Spring.

More information on future trips will appear here and in both the monthly newsletter and in group emails. Please contact me for further information.

Autumn/Winter Talks Programme
A series of talks has been arranged for this period, starting in October. The provisional talk list and the dates on which these will take place has been sent to group members and also appears in the calendar of events. These talks will largely be through Zoom, and there will be a mix of external, paid speakers, swaps with other u3as, and a couple of talks by our own group members.

The two WMCC talks planned for early 2022 have been postponed indefinitely owing to the developments with Covid. The two remaining Zoom talks will go ahead.

Programme for 2022
Whilst we wait and see where we might be with Covid, very provisional plans have been made, with some possible dates and a list of venues. Group members already have the list. More information will be included both here and in the newsletter, so please watch out for further developments.

Joining the Group Interest List
