Classes are now suspended. On the basis of current advice about ‘social distancing’ for people who may be more vulnerable to COVID 19 – such as our older community members, and people with pre-existing illnesses or conditions – the Committee has decided to suspend all face to face U3A Emerald classes until further notice.

This has been a very difficult decision as we know how much you value your participation. However, the good health of all of our members has to be our paramount concern. We will continuously monitor the situation and will immediately advise you by email and through this website when our classes can resume. In the meantime, we wish all our members good health and look forward to seeing you again when classes resume.
