u3a - u3a Day

u3a Wednesday 2 June 2021

Our first ever national u3a day is Wednesday 2 June 2021.

As you are aware, u3a day is planned to maximise the opportunity to raise our profile nationally as well as locally. Nationally, we will work towards signposting media attention to Wednesday 2nd June 2021.

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 has a wealth of ideas and discussion points and is a very positive community.

It is also recommended that as many individual members sign up to the national online 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.

u3a day, 2nd June 2021, is set to celebrate the new experiences that come from being in your third age (no longer in full-time employment or bringing up children.) The annual event, which will take place in Volunteer Week on the first Wednesday in June, will show the amazing and diverse things that our members get up to and challenge preconceptions of what being an older adult means. The 2021 event will be enhanced by the multitude of projects, activities, outcomes and new approaches to communication that have emerged as a consequence of the 2020 Pandemic Lockdown period.
