Wendover U3A Groups’ News January 2022
We have had two very challenging years so let us hope that 2022 is a little bit easier!
We currently have 55 groups and the majority of these are currently meeting which is a great achievement. Many thanks to the convenors for all their efforts to make this possible.
You will have seen in the news recently that Government rules have been amended concerning the wearing of face coverings. All members (unless exempt) must wear face coverings in most indoor settings including community centres and village halls.
For any groups who are considering meeting up, you just need to prepare a Risk Assessment which is shown to all members of your group prior to the meeting and then remember to keep an accurate record of who attends each session. Examples of Risk Assessments can be found on the website but if you need any extra help, please do let me know. We must always follow current government guidelines and these can be found on the groups’ page of the website
You will have heard at the AGM that our u3a has funds available to help groups. We are now in a position to fund a group’s first six meetings since restarting to make hall bookings more viable. Two extra meeting rooms have been added to the website and these can be found under Groups/Convenors’ Handbook/Local Venues. We also have funds to help with equipment so do contact me or anyone else on the committee if there is anything we can do to help.
Please make sure that the Rolling Screen and your Group Page entry on the website is up to date. Many members rely on this information. If you are not confident about changing your information, this is not a problem – just let me know.
We have a few groups who have decided not to meet mainly due to falling numbers and/or lack of convenor. These groups are French 1 and 3, Italian, Drama, Ukulele and Latin Understanding. If anyone can help in any way, please do let me know. It would be such a pity if these groups disappeared for ever as from talking to members, there is obviously an interest in learning languages and ukulele.
Please let me know if your group needs a mention either on this page or at the main meeting – maybe the convenor needs assistance or the group can take several new members. If you have difficulty in accessing any of the documents or have any questions at all, please contact Groups or Chairman.
Do check the website frequently for updates and please make sure any website diary entries are up to date. If you need help with this, let me know. It would be useful if meetings were put on your diary page which would in turn update the Main Diary Page.
Wishing you all a very Happy 2022
