Marple Bridge & Mellor


Corona Virus NEWS – Marple Bridge and Mellor U3A

Meetings on Zoom (Check Dates for Your Diary below) and visit the the new "group" ZOOM MEETINGS.

Although we are still not able to meet in person we have been able to arrange for our monthly meetings to continue using the Zoom system. Carol has purchased a Zoom licence on behalf of our U3A and this means that we will be able to host future guest speakers. It also has the added benefit that you can sit in the comfort of your own home to participate, without having to trudge to the church hall in the cold winter months!

We are hoping to recommence monthly meetings at St Paul's Church Hall soon.

The firm date will depend on government restrictions and guidance from u3a National Office.

Please watch the website for details. An email will be sent to those members with internet connection and a postal letter sent to those members who do not have email.

If anyone has a particular difficulty, please contact a member of the committee using the contact page on this website.

Monthly Meetings (for reference only):

Unless otherwise notified, the ordinary monthly meetings are held in St Paul’s Church Hall, Compstall on the third Tuesday of each month at 9-30am (for coffee and socializing).
