IMPORTANT CORONA VIRUS UPDATE
Based on Advice from the Government and the Third Age Trust, at the start of the pandemic, all normal Main Meetings and Group Activities were initially cancelled. Main meetings and some group activities were moved to Zoom where possible and appropriate. Plans are now being made to restart physical meetings where this is possible, legal and sensible
Whilst our Meetings and Activities are curtailed we can 'stay in touch' by reading and contributing to a new ad-hoc magazine called “KEEPING IN TOUCH”. Several edition have already been circulated. The magazine is edited by Diana Wilson who is the editor of 'KONTACT 2'. If you would like to submit an Article, Photo or Joke you can make contact with Diana by using the form below. You need to enter your name and email address, click on the Kontact 2 Editor box and enter your message in the box..
Since September 2020 the committee has arranged virtual Main Meetings using Zoom software. These will continue until normal Meetings can be resumed. The committee hopes this will take place in January 2022. The links to access the Zoom main meetings will continue to be emailed out to members close to the meeting dates. Details of the zoom meetings are given in the usual event table on the EVENTS page.
Some groups have recently managed to adapt and restart their normal meetings and activities to cope with the Corona virus

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a national organisation bringing educational and social opportunities to people no longer in full-time work. It creates an environment where all can benefit by sharing knowledge acquired during our lives or by getting together to try something completely new.
Spelthorne U3A K2 is a well established and growing U3A serving Spelthorne, a borough in Surrey, covering Ashford, Shepperton, Staines and Sunbury. Currently, there are about 600 members enjoying around 40 widely varied group activities. There is something for everyone and new members are welcomed.
We are the second of two groups in the Spelthorne area and we are known exclusively as “K2”. We have our own constitution, accounts and registered charity number. There is also an elected chairman and executive committee which serves through its group leaders the needs of our members. There are occasions when we share our group activity with the first and older organisation known as SU3A.
Our Newsletter is published quarterly and we have General Monthly Meetings (usually the second Thursday in the month 2-3.30pm).
After the announcements the General Monthly Meetings are addressed by a variety of lively carefully chosen guest speakers and meetings are well attended. Refreshments are available together with information about forthcoming events.
If you are not a member, we hope that you will join us. We pride ourselves on being a friendly welcoming group with a wide and varied range of interests.
