As you would expect, all face to face meetings are cancelled for the foreseeable future. But Interest Groups are finding ways to keep in touch, embracing technology where possible, whether it be holding meetings via video call tools such as Zoom, sending out email updates, or just picking up the phone for a chat. Click HERE to let us know how your Interest Group is keeping in touch. In the mean time click HERE for some interesting things to see or do online during lockdown, including some great Theatre, Opera and Ballet. Thanks to Beckenham U3A for putting this list together.
Membership for the year starting 1 March 2020 is now due. This year we have introduced online renewal via PayPal. It's quick and easy and you don't need your own PayPal account. If you prefer you can still pay by cheque. Click HERE for more details.
