Thame & District



Although all activities organised by Thame and District U3A were suspended when the Covid-19 lock down commenced in March 2020, it has been possible for some to recommence:

- A programme of on-line meetings, presented through Zoom video conferencing, commenced in July to replace the twice monthly membership meetings. Please see this web site's "Events" page in order to view the programme.

- Some Groups have also been able to adopt on-line video conferencing and email messaging as a means of continuing some of their activities. Please view Group pages for further information.

- A new group, the JIGSAW GROUP has been set up to provide a local jigsaw exchange among U3A members. Further details can be viewed on the Group's page.

- A ”THINGS TO DO” page has been added to Thame & District U3A’s web site. It provides links to web sites offering things to do during the period of lock down and also to web sites containing useful information. It is expected that new links will be added from time to time. Click on “Things To Do” on the header bar of this page in order to view this page.

- A FACEBOOK GROUP page has been set up by Thame & District U3A which its members can join. If you have a Facebook account you can find the page by searching for Thame & District U3A Group.

It remains our ambition to return to see activities resume when it is considered safe to do so and the Committee continues to monitor and review the position.
