The u3a Movement
The u3a movement is nationwide, most towns have a local u3a. Currently there are over 1,000 u3as with over 450,000 members. There is a national u3a body, the u3a Trust, which provides educational and administrative support to the local u3as.
The Trust is about to circulate a draft digital strategy document. This video is a conversation with the chair of the digital strategy working group.
Following the Trust’s AGM on 6th October, a presentation was made by the Chair, Liz Thackray and the Vice-chair, Allan Walmsley about a possible re-structuring of the Board of Trustees. It was made clear that these were only suggestions and that consultation with the membership would be held before any draft proposals were formulated.
The following videos give some background to the discussion. If you have any questions you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
The video below, produced by the u3a Trust, highlights the benefits and opportunities available when joining a u3a.
The Trust has also produced a video which describes a typical local u3a, not all of the specific activities mentioned are currently provided by Tonbridge u3a.
