πŸ„3rd Age Trust Monthly Online Newsletter: Not the same as the "3rd Age Matters" magazine which you should be receiving; this monthly online newsletter shares news & stories across the U3A movement & is available free to members; to receive it click U3A Online Newsletter Signup.
πŸ„GROUP CONTACTS/PAGE EDITORS: If you are a new group contact or would appreciate a refresher session then we will be pleased to help. BEACON is very handy for contacting your group members BUT you should also keep your WEBSITE GROUP PAGE as up-to-date as possible, particularly proposed meetings & events, as the two systems are not yet compatible. Go to the CONTACT US Page & Email a member of the team for your Beacon session or website support. Thank you.
πŸ„Due to our increasing success, several groups appear to have reached capacity (shaded grey on the GROUPS page list)! If you are interested in a group which appears to be 'full' it is important to let Heather Wright & the group contact know so that we can take steps to address the problem!
