The Aughton & Ormskirk University of the Third Age (U3A) is a self-help, member-run organisation for people no longer in full-time employment. Members share their knowledge, skills & experience in a variety of ways through meetings, talks, social and group activities – all in a friendly, relaxed environment.
Recent and past Communications from the Management Committee relating to the current social distancing situations that so much affects our U3A can be found on the Keeping in Touch page. This includes links to August messages about “activities based at hired premises” and “restart decision deferred until New Year 2021” and the recent U3A Newsletter No 1 sent out to all Aughton & Ormskirk U3A members.
Following the postponement of the AGM earlier in the year due to lockdown, a ‘virtual’ AGM is replacing it in September. You will have received notification already via Beacon email including voting instructions. (Members with no email address on their Beacon Membership record have been notified by post.) See also the AGM 2020 webpage for relevant details including Agenda, Minutes of 2019 AGM, Officer Reports and Nomination Statements.
In the meantime, a good number of group and other activities are managing to carry on, remotely and innovatively, in spite of the current restrictions. See Our Virtual U3A.
