Coronavirus Update

Sleaford u3a activities are recommencing, but please be patient as we attempt to resume "normal" service.

We remain open for business with a number of groups meeting virtually and, as restrictions are lifted, more and more meeting in person.

All face to face meetings have risk assessments in place and specific precautions are adhered to in accordance with local and national government and NHS guidance.

Interest groups that are not currently active are either waiting for new leaders or new venues. Some have chosen to recommence later in the year.

Please check with individual Group Leaders for details and what their plans are for the coming months.

The committee continues to review the situation keeping Group Leaders informed as the guidance changes.

Shared Learning Projects
One of the activities that have continued to flourish despite the current health crisis has been our participation in Shared Learning Projects.
Do take a look at the links on this page to see what we have been up to recently and those projects planned for the future.

Stukeley Memoirs project
Over the last year Sleaford U3A have been working with the Spalding Gentlemen's Society transcribing five volumes written by William Stukeley describing meetings he attended at the Royal Society, between 1740 and 1751. The Memoirs provide an entertaining first-hand account of a pivotal period in the history of science in Britain. As a narrative written for friends and fellow SGS members, they also provide insights into the politics and personalities of Britain's scientific community.

Our members worked on Volume 1 which is now available to view on the SGS website.

Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting will take place on Friday 24th September. Further details will be available in the July Newsletter.

Congratulations to all those involved in making the all the celebration events a success.
