Notice Board

LONELINESS can be much worse at Christmas time. The u3a are trying to reach out and help. Please follow the Link.

There is a website which lists dozens of walks which can be downloaded and printed free of charge. For more information visit

The Thirsk U3A Committee have just had a virtual meeting to consider what additional measures are needed.

With reluctance, we have decided that in the light of Government statements and advice from the U3A Head Office, the monthly meetings must be cancelled. The Committee will look again at the prevailing situation later on.

Sheila Baker, our Groups Coordinator, has already notified Group Leaders that they should halt all their meetings. Can we reinforce that message - IF GROUPS CONTINUE TO HOLD MEETINGS, HOWEVER INFORMAL OR IMPROMPTU, THEY WILL NOT BE COVERED BY THE U3A INSURANCE.

On this website, in addition to routine material, we will post any announcements by Group Leaders and will use the site to tell you about the July decision. There is a CONTACT button at the top of the page for you to get in touch with David Humphreys, the webmaster.

We have had a couple of enquiries from people asking how they can pay their subscriptions - contact Tony Baker, the Treasurer, and he will advise.

Please share this information to any members without internet connection.

We hope that our next circular to members has some better news.

Yours sincerely
