Important News Update


Hi everyone

 I am really sad to inform you that the Committee of Management of U3A Clarence has decided to cancel U3A classes at Rosny Library from today for the whole of term 1.

 This decision was taken at the committee meeting today after much discussion. The committee believes that is not possible for U3A Clarence to conduct its classes and meet the requirements of the Chief Health Officer regarding social distancing. As U3A members are in the demographic most at risk, this decision was taken to minimise harm.

 Please note that classes WILL NOT be held on Wednesday 18 March.

 The Committee of Management will keep in touch and let you know how U3A Clarence will proceed in terms 2 and 3. I hope you will all go through this smoothly and safely.

 Best regards

Carol Rossendell

Course Programmer


For Term 1 2020 we have our first lectures/ activities on the 2 March.

There will not be any sessions for 9 and 11 March because the Eight Hour Day public holiday falls on the 9th.
