FERNDOWN U3A : CoronaVirus Update 1st NOVEMBER 2020 

Dear U3A Members      IMPORTANT  –  PLEASE READ

You are probably aware that last night the Prime Minister announced new national regulations to help contain the coronavirus pandemic, which come into effect this coming Thursday (Nov 5 th).

Our ‘Rule-of-6’ groups will continue to meet until then (this includes the Longham Lakes walk arranged for this coming Wednesday): but all face-to-face indoor and outdoor activities (including walks, golf and cycling) are cancelled as from November 5th.

All this will be a great disappointment for everyone. But our Zoom Groups will continue to meet, as well as the Something Every Day strands on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

We will also arrange one-off Zoom meetings as the opportunity arises. Here’s a reminder of the first one – on Tuesday Nov 10th at 2.30pm Jude Hodges and Isobel Torrent are hosting their ‘Virtual Tea Party’ in aid of MacMillan Caring Locally, our Charity of the Year 2020.

(PS – Keep a lookout next week for the invitation to send in nominations for the FU3A Charity of the Year 2021).

Your Committee
