URGENT NOTICE - PLEASE READ

**********************************************************

Following the Government's statement, the National Office of the u3a, and the Committee of Thorpe Bay u3a fully support the decision, has said that no face-to-face u3a meetings should take place during the lockdown.

We know that many of our interest groups are meeting using Zoom and other online video systems and we would encourage you to all to expand your horizons and take part in, or organise, some of these meetings.

We are now running some Zoom based presentations. The first ones have been very popular and we should have more for you at the end of each month. Plus we have added a second presentation each month to our list. So join us on Zoom on the 1st Thursday and 3rd Friday of each month. Please remember that we only have a licence to allow 100 devices to login. We apologise if you are unable to get in. If this occurs regularly then we will, at considerable cost, increase the numbers on our account.
