Newcastle

Welcome

CORONAVIRUS AND NEWCASTLE U3A

The monthly mailing was issued on May 11th. Hard copies will be sent to non -emailing members. The twice yearly magazine, 'YOU3A' was also issued. Another great read.

We have greatly reduced the number of members who received hard copies of the monthly mailing. Many members have now chosen to have it by email. Thank you to those members as it cuts costs, time and it means we can reach more members quickly.

Worried about renewing membership? Don't be worried as the Newsletters have items telling you how to do this. Non-emailers will receive news by post and please pass on info if you know non-emailers.
We want to keep in communication with all our members so please read the webpage, Facebook and your monthly mailing. In addition, you will receive several messages either by email or post to update you with information. Also, our support team is working to contact members regularly.
Suggestions:
Learn how to use Facetime, Facebook, Facebook live video and Zoom to be able to see and speak to your family, friends and U3A friends.
Try the online learning programmes that our website now has. YOUR IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS TO POST ON THESE PROGRAMMES WILL BE APPRECIATED
