Group Enabler

Despite the current Covid-19 regulations, many of our groups are finding ways to carry on regardless. From making music in carports, as The Music Workshop group has been doing, to sampling good wines al fresco, as enjoyed by the Wine Tasting group, our members are making the most of the late summer weather.

Some of the local venues we normally use are preparing to open their doors for the first time since March and we will be ensuring that all premises are Covid-19 compliant before considering them for group use. We continue to refer to the national U3A guidelines and all Group Leaders have now been sent the latest updates, as well as new Risk Assessments for indoor and outdoor groups. I’d like to thank all Group Leaders who have consulted their members to find out the level of interest in returning. Our main priority is that, having considered your own particular situation, you feel safe and confident when meeting up with others again.

Although it may be possible for some small groups to meet up soon indoors, meetings held in members’ houses are still not permitted; neither is any activity which involves the sharing of equipment. Please consider using Zoom as an alternative way of meeting – there are several weekly slots available so just let me know if you want to give it a try.
