Study Days & Short Courses
Study Days provide all members with the opportunity to study a topic thought to be of general interest. In the past days have been arranged on Climate Change, Gardening for Wildlife and many other interesting topics.
Further study days will be listed below when they are arranged.
Many short courses are arranged by the u3a Trust, their relationship with leading organisations, built up over many years, has meant they are in a position to offer selected national events online ensuring that learning is still available to our u3as and their members. This includes events with the National Gallery, Royal Institution, Guildhall Art Gallery, and the British Library (for which there may be a charge).

First aid taster course, including use of a defibrillator
The Tu3a website now has information in the group leaders' area on using a defibrillator. This includes another website which, when a post code is entered, shows their nearest location. There are some 20 in the Tonbridge area.
A course was scheduled some time ago but had to be cancelled because of lockdown, but we are now able to offer the following course for up to 12 people. All participants must be able to kneel down, and be prepared to be placed into a recovery position, as this will be a practical session.
The course will be held at the Riverside Suite in the Angel Centre and cost is expected to be £5. The session would be for 2 hours and our instructor, Mary Matson, who is prepared to give up her time for this great cause, will try to cover as much of this list as the participants’ questions will allow: Primary survey (what to do with someone who is unconscious); Recovery position; CPR and using an AED (defibrillator); Heart attack; Stroke; Bleeding and Shock Date to be announced, but will probably be in August or September (assuming there is not another lockdown!!!).
