Welcome to Tewkesbury & District U3A
The latest advice given to the committee by the Third Age Trust is that 'At the moment all indoor activities and indoor meetings cannot take place.'
Outdoor activities must be subject to Risk Assessments, to be completed by the Group Leader (which should be shared with the group's members)and by individual members (not to be shared) who must take personal responsibility for deciding if the group will be safe for them to attend. A link is provided to the Third Age Trust site, which has a template Outdoor Risk Assessment form. Please note that members will need to sign in to the Third Age Trust in order to access the form. Risk Assessment NB without an UP TO DATE Risk Assessment, insurance is not valid.
We are aware that some TU3A members may be in need of support during these difficult times. While we are not a 'helping' organisation, if you or a member that you know consider that the Committee can be of assistance, please call 01684 325013. Some committee members, if not in isolation, will be happy to assist if they can.
