Corona Virus NEWS – Marple Bridge and Mellor U3A

Due to the Corona virus, Marple Bridge and Mellor U3A have regrettably cancelled monthly meetings at St Pauls Church Hall until further notice.

We are very sorry to do this but it is following government advice and that from the National U3A office.

Please look out for an email or a notice on the website to tell you when the meetings will start again.

Should you have any group activity, outings, meals, etc., booked for the coming months, please check about continuance. If in doubt, please directly contact your group leader or organiser of a particular event. Event organiser details will be on your booking form.

The Committee wish you all well during these circumstances.
If anyone has a particular difficulty, please contact a member of the committee using the contact page on this website.

Thursford Christmas Spectacular 2020
We are planning a three day trip to north Norfolk, starting on 26th November 2020, to see this show and, as it is rapidly acquiring a national reputation, early booking is essential. Full details are in the appendix to the November newsletter and several videos are available on You Tube. Application forms will be available at our November meeting. The deposit is £50 per person, plus £23.50 per person for insurance if required, and cheques should be made payable to “Roy McCarthy Coaches Co Ltd”. We are looking far ahead here but we do have a limited number of spaces and it is possible that delay might result in disappointment. Organiser Alan Stanbridge.
