2021 Talk Dates

Alternate Monday and Tuesday mornings

Date 2021

Speaker

Title of Talk

Please reserve the following dates in your diary.

Details of how to join the monthly Zoom talks will be emailed to all members and published in the News Bulletins.

We are hoping that later in 2021 it may be possible to meet at the Goods Shed after we have all been vaccinated. Meanwhile, our Speakers are planning to talk to us via “Zoom”. Your Committee is well aware that meeting remotely is by no means a substitute for personal contact or for the opportunity to socialise after the Monthly Meeting.

We’ve changed the days of the Monthly Meetings to alternate Mondays and Tuesdays to allow more time for chatting afterwards over a coffee or tea, at the Goods Shed post vaccinations. This is a most important aspect of the u3a.

Meanwhile, the following dates should stay in your diary and we will keep Members informed as to future plans as soon as they become clear.
