FACEBOOK

Are you aware that Worcester U3A now has its own Worcester Area Group U3A Facebook Page?
We had already been thinking about venturing into the world of social media, but the Covid-19 crisis has accelerated our decision.
The group is for members of the Worcester Area U3A to meet, chat and share experiences.
It is a closed group restricted to members only and its numbers have been steadily growing.
So, if you are already on Facebook – or plan to set up your own personal Facebook page - why not join us? Just send a ‘Friend Request’ using the tab on the Worcester Area Group U3A page quoting your membership number. Click on u3a facebook to connect to our new page.

NEWS & EVENTS REPORTS

REQUEST FOR PHOTOS

Your committee are in the process of up-dating our publicity material. We are planning to have new leaflets printed which will have more local information and reflect the informal, inclusive, fun nature of all that we do. The display boards, and the banner are also not in keeping with the latest colours and wording used by TAT. To this end we are requesting a new batch of recent group photos, the livelier the better. Please bear in mind that all the participants must agree to have their photos in the public domain, as they have been in the past. Any new ideas will be welcome from meeting and greeting to tea-making, indoor and outdoor activities, outings, holidays, main meetings. All will be welcome. Please send to publicity@worcesteru3a.org
