Every Thursday 3.00 – 4.00 – Thursday Afternoon Chat (starting 15 April)

Do you miss meeting and chatting to other U3AC members? Everyone is a bit isolated at the moment so if you’d like to say hello to fellow members we’ve set up an informal Thursday afternoon session from 3.00 – 4.00 pm on Zoom. Please feel free to ‘pop in’. One of our members will host this every week – there’s no booking required. Please do come and bring a cuppa!

Reminders – Courses

Lectures survey – please complete

Both the Wednesday and Norah Boyce lectures have proved extremely popular online over the last three terms. In anticipation of covid-related restrictions being relaxed by the start of the Autumn term, we are launching a survey to assess members’ preferences for different formats of lectures – zoom online, in person or a combination. Here is the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WR8NZV3

Your views are important in shaping the programme for next term and beyond. Please respond by 7 May, the results will be published by the end of the May.
