NOTE: Given the highly unusual circumstances, Committee have agreed that we will restrict the meeting purely to the formal elements required by our Articles of Association. The meeting will therefore be held using the Zoom video conferencing system to pass the resolutions detailed in the agenda set out below.

UNFORTUNATELY,  due to the limitations of the Zoom polling system all votes must be pre-programmed into the system. Therefore we will be unable to accept points of order or amendments during the meeting as we would be unable to vote on them. As all of the relevant papers have been made available to Members, if you wish to submit a point of order or amendment to a resolution the Committee are happy to receive them in writing in advance. Similarly, if for whatever reason you are unable to attend the AGM you may also, if you wish, cast your vote(s) either by post or email. All of the above options must be returned to the Secretary by 12 noon on 19th April 2021 at the address detailed below.

Treasurer wanted for our U3A


Do you enjoy working with figures?

Many of you will know our current Treasurer, Stuart Findlay.  Stuart reaches the end of his three year term on 31 March 2021 and, having done a great job, has decided he won’t stand for re-election to the post for a further three years.

Accordingly we are now seeking interest in the role from members who have some financial background.

Bank Holiday Nordic Walk

Nine of the Monday Morning Nordic walkers met today for a lovely walk in the Spring sunshine. Walking within Jubilee woods we stopped to catch our breath by The Owl, and shelter from the  freezing wind blowing across the fields. In line with the Government guidelines we are still observing the rule of 6 on the walk and continuing to social distance although the angle of the photo makes us seem closer! The official Sefton walks commence in 2 weeks time when we will be able to walk as a large group once again as an organised outdoor activity with Covid secure guidelines in place. But whether in 6’s or a group its great to get out and about together again.

Outdoor activities to resume

With the easing of certain restrictions regarding outdoor activities and people meeting outdoors some of our groups are keen to get going and meet up with other members.
Whilst many of our members have been out and about, either solo or in pairs, on an informal basis as friends, the coming months will give us the opportunity to resume official u3a outdoor activities as near as possible to normal as the current pandemic permits.
From March 29th people will be permitted to engage in recreation and outdoor activity provided the Rule of 6 is observed.  Our Golf and Bowls Groups will meet up at this time as will the Day Riders and In-betweeners Cycling Groups together with Nordic Walking ( Rule of 6 ).
Other Outdoor Activity groups such as The Breakaway Cyclists, Sunday Strollers and Walk a Mile or Two will officially resume in April.
