Restarting activities in September 2021

The results of our recent membership survey show that many of us are keen to get back together. Our outdoor groups have been meeting up again for some time, and the scene is set for us to restart meeting again in person from September! Given the continuing uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, however, we are committed to giving groups as much flexibility as possible to meet up again. We are consulting with Group Leaders as to how best to run our groups in the current circumstances, whether this is face-to-face or online. Look out for updates in your monthly ‘What’s New’ mailings, and keep an eye on the website, to stay abreast of developments.

Click on Members Survey to read the full report on members' views on restarting activities in the 2021-22 Worcester u3a season.
