Trust U3A

Current Affairs Discussion Group

Current Affairs Discussion Group

Join the group via Beacon Members Portal

This group is open to all members and will need a minimum of 7 members to run, up to a maximum of 15.

This is a modern group for discussion of current items appearing in the newspapers/TV and other media.
This is not a discussion group for reminiscing, historical recollections or long rambling contributions.

The emphasis to be on short concise contributions so that we can get through a good selection of topical items. Items will generally be suggested by members during the meeting in turn and can include both serious and light-hearted items.
Occasionally important for discussion items to be advised to members in advance.

The group may run every two weeks, perhaps on a Thursday – at a time to be agreed by the group members.
The meetings will take place over Zoom and last for 2 hours. Other communications will be by Bcc email.

Trust u3a members can contact Sheila the group leader via the Beacon Members Portal

Please address any other Trust u3a queries to the Groups Co-Ordinator.
