Welcome to u3a Tewkesbury & District
The Committee anticipates that groups will be meeting face to face around mid September. In the meantime, some groups are continuing to 'Learn, laugh and live' via social media and video conferencing. Please contact the Group Leader to establish the current situation with any groups you may wish to join.
General Meetings will be held via Zoom for August and September. The Committee anticipates the October General Meeting will be held at the Baptist Church. Hybrid meetings are being investigated to try to accommodate those members who may wish to continue online. See Events page for details.
