SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT  21st July

Unfortunately with the ongoing Covid 19 crisis showing no signs of improving, our Committee has made the decision to suspend all Face to Face Groups for the remainder of 2020. This decision was taken with the safety and best interests of all our members in mind.  

        ***********************************************************

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT 18th June

IN RESPONSE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION WITH THE CORONA VIRUS, ALL U3A TWEED COAST GROUPS/CLASSES AT ALL LOCATIONS ARE SUSPENDED UNTILL FURTHER NOTICE.

Term 3 would normally start on the 20th July. The loss of the Cudgen Leagues Club due to fire has meant our Committe has had to source other venues for our activities. Local Clubs, schools and private venues have been amazing in their response to our dilema and our Committee has been working non stop to formulate a timetable for our Groups for when we are able to safely resume face to face meetings.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT 16th MARCH 2020

Our annual membership fee is still at a modest $40. For this you may join as many different groups as you wish, subject to  numbers. However you may only attend one YOGA and or one PILATES group unless there is no waiting list. This is due to overwhelming interest in these groups and the limit on numbers attending. Please respect the Group Leader’s decision. when enquiring about this.

At U3A Tweed Coast we love our Group Leaders and recently held a lunch to show our
appreciation for all their hard work throughout the year. After all without them we have no U3A. Thirty eight Group Leaders take over 50 Groups between them, that is awesome.
 
The photo shows five leaders receiving  Certificates of Appreciation for their
contributions over a combined 39 years. Awesome!!
