The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
U3A: April 2020
West Cheshire Rural U3A update
Due to the current restrictions for COVID 19, West Cheshire Rural U3A monthly meetings are currently not taking place, however that doesn't mean all our group activities had stopped. Some group activities are continuing online, including the Poetry Group and the Ukulele Group.
We normally produce a U3A monthly newsletter which is printed and distributed to members. You may have seen paper copies in the Barbour Institute. Replacing the newsletter, for the time being, is a weekly bulletin which is available on line at our website..
It includes some updates from the interest groups, together with some suggestion of other online activities that people may be interested in. The bulletin is produced weekly and is available from this link.
