Group Leaders are being updated with the latest National Office's advice regarding Groups meeting indoors via a twice weekly Newsletter which goes to all members with email addresses.
At one stage the advice was that groups could resume in a Covid-safe way, but this has now been superseded and currently no Groups should be planning to meet indoors, and those meeting outdoors must be following the "Rule of Six".
Group pages were updated with their plans when it was thought possible that some groups could resume their face-to-face meetings. These pages will be updated with plans for non face-to-face meetings as the information is received from Group Leaders.
Members of the committee meet every Wednesday via Zoom to update each other and discuss ideas.
Our newsletter and quizzes have been well received. One member commented that these had been a 'lifeline' during the early days of the lockdown.
Information given by Group Leaders on when, how and if Groups are planning to meet for the remainder of 2020 is available on individual Group Web Pages.
More detailed information on each of our Groups is available below by selecting their name, but for an idea of the Trips and Talks that have been available click on the link to the right.
There may be times when a group is full. When this happens the Group Leader will usually keep a waiting list of members who are interested in joining, and contact them when there is room. If there are sufficient members wishing to join a group then a second, or third, or.. group may be formed if there is a member who volunteers to lead a new group. For example there are 4 Book Clubs.
If any Group Leader or member has an article that they would like to be considered for inclusion in the next U3A Newsletter then either contact the Newsletter Editor via the link on the Contacts page or email mawdesleyU3A@btinternet.com and your message will be passed to the Editor.
