Covid-19 Checklist


In light of all U3As suspending all face-to-face activities for the foreseeable future, your Regional Committee has cancelled fees for the 2020 year.

Schools and Universities are operating remotely only and certain U3A interest groups, as well some shared learning projects, continue to function through electronic communication.

We welcome ideas and suggestions as to how we can function in the virtual world.

Website Display Problem

Some websites contain links to files saved in Microsoft Word .docx format. Depending on your browser, these may not display properly. If this is the case you can "right click" with your mouse and choose to download the file instead.

All documents on this website (as far as I know) are in pdf format and should open normally on your computer or tablet.
