Many of our Groups are still operating during this Covid-19 stay at home period, even if on a reduced scaled. Just check out the Groups pages to see what is going on. We are open to new Members as well. You can find details of how to join on our Contact page.

It’s over to the members this week as people have been emailing contributions to us. Thank you so much to them. I know that many of our members are really appreciating these weekly missives – they are writing to us at %stanstedu3% to tell us so. Please carry on sending articles and photos in as they are very welcome. How about some photos;

On this side of this page you can see:

§ A painting from Elaine of the Art Group. I am just amazed at how talented the members of our Art Group are. Please keep sending these lovely photos in.

§ The Lock Down Blues – a poem by Doreen Heals. Something to make you smile.

§ The Great Stansted Egg Mystery Solved. Allan has solved where all the eggs in his garden are coming from, with a little help from his friends!

§ Wishes – a short story by Yvonne Ayres. Another story from the Creative Writing Group.

The Stansted U3A Facebook group page contains news, jokes and info from members. Why not take a look. Just go onto Facebook and search for Stansted U3A in the search bar. It is a closed group so you have to wait to be admitted, but we try to do this as quickly as possible. The group is open to all Stansted U3A members. We are also sending a weekly newsletter out to all members on email.
