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!

Normal Monthly Meetings are currently cancelled

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.
