Woodstock

Events to July 2022

Great News!!!!
Woodstock and District U3A are open for business again.
Whilst we are still unable to meet in person, we are now able to offer a full programme of Speaker Talks online via Zoom. All the talks will start at 2pm on the first Tuesday of the month.

The July 2021 talk was an interesting and enlightening talk on the Art of World War II by Lizzy Rowe. In August, Jeff Rozelaar's talk "A Ticket to Ride" about his university years in the mid 60's was very entertaining. We have also had a talk by the charity Dogs for Good - heartwarming and inspiring. Stephen Barker gave a talk on Hardit Singh Malik, the flying Sikh - what an intersting and extraordinary life.

Zoom can be used on any PC or tablet with internet connection. It is very straightforward to join a Zoom meeting and any Member of the Committee would be very happy to give advice if required.

We look forward to 'seeing' you at the next meeting.
