u3a aims and objectives are to enhance the lives of people no longer working by providing a social network of those with similar interest. We do this through more than 50 Interest Groups providing educational, leisure and recreational activities for the benefit of members in Tavistock and the surrounding area. Groups are organised on a self help basis where we share knowledge and experience. Under normal circumstances we have good programme of social events and several active walking groups.
We were planning to resume our ‘normal’ monthly meetings from September 1st as the Town Hall will be available.
Regretfully, it has been decided that Wednesday’s meeting will now revert to Zoom only. This is due to the changing circumstances regarding Covid numbers in West Devon. Apologies to those who were planning on attending in the Town Hall but it is felt that this is the most responsible action to take. Rest assured that, as soon as we feel that it is safe to do so, we will resume ‘normal’ monthly meetings as outlined below.
We will obviously keep to the government guidelines/recommendations that are in place at the time and be guided by both the Town Hall and our members. We anticipate that whatever the restrictions/numbers that are/are not in force, not everyone will be comfortable with these. The committee are looking at a hybrid meeting where we have a speaker and audience in the Town Hall but are also able to zoom the meeting to additional members either in another venue or at home. Please keep checking the website and your emails for more information as it comes available.
Our Website carries updates and, as things progress, we will keep you informed as to when we can begin our groups once again. ‘Normal’ meetings can now resume but this will be very dependent on the Group Leaders. Those of you who are in existing groups will be contacted by the Group Leaders as to when/if they are resuming. For those of you who are new to our u3a or those that wish to join other groups, please monitor the website for further details.
For and on behalf of the Committee of Tavy District u3a.
