Northumbria Region U3A



U3A Day 3 June 2020

Sue Stokes is the Regional Trustee for Yorkshire and she is co-ordinating the day
“we are so excited that from now on, every year, there will be a day dedicated to
learning, staying active and having fun in your third age..”

There is a dedicated page on the national website with a tool kit for planning
purposes in word and excel format (we would recommend using the excel version as
it offers easier and more flexibility for change). The National Facebook page will be
posting and sharing U3A ideas for the day.

At our Regional Meetings we will publicise events in our Region and offer the
opportunity to share your plans. We have heard already of several U3A’s local to
each other who are combining for a joint event. The Regional website will help
publicise your events as well as the National Facebook page.

Other U3A’s are planning to use the event for increasing awareness and a recruitment drive. The day
could be used to launch new interest groups? Whatever is decided keep in mind this
is an annual event.

Good luck with organising your event and if you need help contact Peter Chrichard Chair of the North East Region event sub committee.
