Luton

Groups

We are back and many groups are recruiting for new members. Why not have a look at the list of groups and contact the leader to see if there are spaces. We can always start new groups if there are too many for any particular one.

2 new groups Please see the 2 sub pages to the right about 'The River Lea Project' and 'Scottish Country Dancing'. These 2 groups have been very successful at recruiting members. For more details please contact the leaders.

I have set up a Facebook page for our u3a Luton. You have to be a fully paid up u3a Luton member and answer a simple question to join it so if you use Facebook and social media please take a look and join it. We want to encourage as many of our members joining in as possible. As time goes on Hilary and I will be adding as much as we can to keep you all in touch with what is happening in other u3as and helping you through these difficult times.

If you are a Facebook user why don't you join 'u3a Keeping in Touch'. It brings all u3as together for discussion on all sorts of topics and how everyone is coping, and how their u3as are using up to date technology to run groups during the pandemic.

PLEASE LOOK FOR REGULAR UPDATES FROM THE THIRD AGE TRUST UNDER THE u3a HEADING ON THIS WEBSITE. THEY HAVE PUT TOGETHER A QUESTION AND ANSWER SECTION COLLATING ALL THEIR ADVICE ABOUT COVID-19

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why not take a look at www.futurelearn.com

They offer free courses in many different subjects with no pressure at all. I have undertaken a couple of them related to family history and they have been excellent. Well worth a look!
National u3a have a new list of new courses available, click on the u3a tab at the top of the page

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'How to Guides' go to the u3a tab on the menu to find lots of information and help from The Third Age Trust to get you through the Covid-19 crisis

LEARN, LAUGH, LIVE

This is the current list of groups in u3a Luton. Clicking on a group's name will take you to a page with some more information.

If you would like more information about a group send a message to Groups Liaison from the Contact page or download the brochure from the link on this page.

Groups marked 'full' may be operating a waiting list. Consider contacting the Groups Liaison Service with a view to starting an additional group.

If you have an interest in a topic that is not listed, again contact the Groups Liaison Service.
In addition we still have members wanting to start Italian but have no one to lead it. If you are interested in leading the group or have knowledge of Italian please contact us. We also have had some interest in learning German. Again, if you might be interested in forming a group please do contact us.#
