Message from the Chairman

ALL U3A MEETINGS ARE STILL CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Hope everyone is well and coping with the unusual times.

We had originally hoped that we would be able to restart our programme of meetings and events in September. However with the current government restrictions and advice and also the threat of a winter surge in Coronavirus cases we do not envisage the possibility of being able to do this. So we will cancel any speakers arranged for September.

Please see the reports section for the latest advice received from U3A.

Of course the government guidelines could change on indoor gatherings, social distancing and wearing of face masks. Better treatments and a vaccine may become available.

Given that many of us are in the vulnerable age group It would be very interesting to have your thoughts on when you would feel comfortable with attending general meetings.

For instance would it depend on:
1 Number of cases of Coronavirus in the area
2 Social Distancing rules
3 Wearing face masks
4 Vaccine availability
5 Venue
6 Other

Please email or ring me with your comments.

Best regards and hope to see you all again sometime in the not too distant future.
Meantime please keep safe
