Coronavirus Suspension Newsletter


Following an extraordinary meeting of the Committee this morning, I am writing to let you know that the Committee has taken the decision to suspend all Alsager U3A activities from Tuesday 17th March until the end of May 2020.

We realise how valuable and important it is for members to be able to take part in the various U3A activities and we want you to know that this decision has not been taken lightly. But we have reluctantly done so, in the interests of your health and wellbeing and in the light of Government recommendations for protection of senior members of society from the Coronavirus.

It will be kept under review and if any changes are made we will send out information as soon as possible by email.

The impact of this decision is:

  • All indoor and outdoor meetings have been suspended.
  • All room bookings have been cancelled until the end of May, including the Civic Centre, with the Help Desk and the Trips Desk closed.
  • There will be no new bookings taken for any trips.
  • The Halifax trip in April will not be proceeding and any payments already made by members will be refunded (those affected will be contacted separately).
  • The theatre trip next week will proceed, unless advice changes in the meantime.

The Committee will continue to meet as planned on a monthly basis and also as and when necessary in-between to monitor the situation.

Our new Alsager U3A web site is planned to go live at the beginning of April and will be a new, extra communication channel available for all members. The next edition of the magazine will be posted on the new website for members to view; any members who do not have access to the website will be sent a hard copy of the magazine by post.

We are very sorry to have to make the decision to suspend activities and we hope you will understand our reasons for doing so.
