Free hampers for Lydiate residents

Good afternoon Dot,  I hope you are well.

Lydiate Parish Council is giving out hampers to residents of Lydiate who are vulnerable, shielding, perhaps lonely during the festive period, or to someone who has gone above and beyond helping others this year. We were wondering whether U3A would have any members in mind they would like to nominate? It would be amazing if you could share this information with your members as anyone can nominate – they need to be a Lydiate Resident.

If anyone has someone they would like to nominate we need a name, contact details and a reason why this person has been nominated. The closing date is midnight on the 16th December 2020.

Kind regards – Laura Johnson

U3A North West and Lancs

U3A North West and Lancashire is promoting a project called ‘My Street’ where a photograph of your street can be taken, images and text added to it,  which could then be featured on the U3A North West web site. Click here for details.

Another project has produced a book which is certainly topical.

U3A in the Time of Corona         

This book is based on the Diary Project and has been created using contributions from U3A members all over the country.

It chronicles our reactions to coronavirus and isolation, as well as how to get a supermarket delivery, how to cut your own hair and what to do with all that free time.  Some people sent drawings, photographs and poems, which have been included.

The book is A4, 120 pages, colour printed and costs £10 including postage.

If you would like to order a copy, please go to the national website
