Welcome to Saxilby U3A


Thank you for visiting Saxilby U3A Website and a huge thanks to those 80+ members who have already renewed their membership for 2020/2021.

As we all know the country is in lock down and we're not able to get out to meet our family and friends at present. Loo roll is at a premium and our local shops have markings on the floor so we don't get close to each other. It's a scary time. If any of you are struggling please remember you can always contact a friend in Saxilby U3A by phone or e-mail. You certainly all have my e-mail address now. I'd also l remind you that SIGNS may also be able to help. Their details are on our website.

This means that the majority of groups within Saxilby U3A have stopped meeting and our monthly gathering will not be happening again for at least a couple of months. I hope to be able to get those groups who are still active to put something on the website soon.

But we will get through this and there will be a time when we can all get together at our monthly meeting for coffee and a chat with friends. I'm so looking forward to seeing you all again. Our speaker finder Paul Stafford will work hard to ensure that those speakers we've missed at our cancelled meetings will be put into a future programme if at all possible so you won't miss out.

There are also things we can do through the website to keep in touch. For example we could share titles of books we've read, share new recipes we've tried, put on photos of our gardens now the spring is here or birds we've seen in the garden. If you have any thoughts do let us know.

One thing we can certainly look forward to is our 10th birthday celebrations in 2021. The committee has already started thinking about how we can celebrate the occasion but if you have any ideas on how we can party together please let us know. All I know is that there certainly must be cake - both standard and gluten free! And candles!

In the meantime please stay home, stay safe.
