Saxilby

Welcome to Saxilby U3A

A message from our Chairman Ann Stafford

DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS, ALL FACE TO FACE MEETINGS OF SAXILBY U3A ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

I'm delighted that, despite all the difficulties with Covid 19 - Saxilby U3A still has 190 members. Not only have the majority of our members rejoined but we're also attracting new members despite all the issues we have with making things work with current restrictions. You are all very welcome.

A number of our interest groups are now operating again so if you'd like to know more please contact the group leader through this website or if you're a Saxilby resident the details are in the Fosse Focus. As well as those groups who kept going through lock down and worked through Zoom we have table tennis (starts 5 October), quiz group (starts 9 October) wine tasting, boule, birdwatching and golf are all going again while taking on board Covid restrictions.

Sadly the one thing we are still not able to do is hold our monthly meetings as the village hall is not large enough for so many of us to get together. Rest assured that we are keeping our eye on guidance and will get our meetings up and running again as soon as we safely can.

I'm delighted that we have a new group starting. From 15 September we will be meeting at the village hall to play badminton on the first and third Tuesday of the month from 10am to 12 noon. The cost per person is £15 to confirm the room booking until the end of November.

Please do remember to check out the contact page for our interest groups where you will find links to the committee and group leaders.

Until I see you all again take care of yourselves.

Ann Stafford
Chairman
Saxilby U3A

Saxilby is a large village, 6 miles to the north west of Lincoln. It is Danish in origin, and is situated on the north bank of the Fossdyke Navigation, originally a Roman canal linking the River Witham at Lincoln with the River Trent at Torksey.

Saxilby U3A itself was established in February 2011.

We are currently unable to hold our monthly meetings due to Covid 19. When all restrictions are removed we will meet on the third Thursday of each month at 10am at Saxilby Village Hall, High Street, Saxilby.

The annual membership fee is £16.
