  • National U3A Day
    National U3A Day

    Sevenoaks U3A Events CANCELLED - see note below

    Third Age Trust - Announcement U3A Day and Coronavirus
    The decision has been made to postpone our first national U3A Day from 3 June 2020 to 1 October 2020 which is International Day of Older
    Persons.  Many U3As have invested time and energy into planning creative and informative events to raise the profile of the movement. We have a long lead-time for this new date so plans can be reviewed and rearranged including venues and guests. Sevenoaks U3A Day is scheduled to run on the 23rd September.

    As you are aware, U3A Day is planned to maximise the opportunity to raise our profile nationally. Nationally, we will work towards
    signposting media attention to 1 October 2020, once that date is confirmed as safe and appropriate.

    We will continue to update resources and advice on the national website. This helps us keep each other up-to-date with what is happening.
    The closed U3A Day Facebook site (https://www.facebook.com/groups/485363562065891) has a wealth of ideas and discussion point s and
    is a very positive community.

    It is also recommended that as many individual members sign up to the national online newsletter (https://www.u3a.org.uk/newsletter) to
    receive regular updates as to advice and measures being put in place during this unprecedented time.

    Let’s look forward to a time to celebrate the wonderful organisation that is U3A! Thank you for your support.

  • Science Open Group - RNLI Presentation

    On Monday 10th February the Science Meeting talk was given by Malcolm Vincent President of the RNLI. This talk immediately followed storm Ciara and in the news headlines that weekend was the mission the Hastings Lifeboat undertook to attempt the rescue of a person on a surfboard. In so doing the lifeboat very nearly capsized but it manage to recover and carry on.
    During the talk we were given detailed information on the Shannon class lifeboat (the same as the Hastings craft), its self-righting capability and other design details that enable such craft to operate in the most severe conditions.
    Our members were suitably impressed and in recognition of the voluntary nature of RNLI generously contributed to their funds in recognition of the work they carry out. The letter of thanks is shown below.
