The u3a movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its u3a groups, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together, socialise together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!
And have FUN at the same time!
Following the Government and NHS announcement that England will be going into lockdown from Thursday 5th November for four weeks, we wanted to send out an update to say all U3A face to face activity in England should cease over this period in line with the guidance.
The Community Centre is open but allowing only restricted numbers so it is not possible for us to resume our monthly meetings at that venue. We are however going to start online meetings using Zoom; our first such meeting was on October 27 and our guest speaker was Simon Gilbert – Another Opening Another Show, about his early life in catering then moving to musical theatre and opera. Simon had to overcome the difficulties of giving a talk when there is no immediate feedback to his jokes. We had 44 requests to attend, though on the day only 35 signed in. Still, a good start and hopefully we will have more next month.
Please do not forget to keep checking the website and look at the posts on our closed Facebook page if you are able to. If this is not possible but you would like a chat please call
