3 Barrie explained the meeting was called in view of the rapid spread of the Coronavirus. It was felt that a decision needed to be made regarding the suspension of U3A activities to ensure a consistent approach.
After a discussion it was decided that all activities would be suspended until further notice. This would include outdoor activities such as cycling and walking.
4 There are around seventy members without an email address so the committee agreed to telephone these members to let them know the situation.
5 It was suggested that Interest Group Leaders use the Newsletter and Website to keep some contact with members.
6 The meeting closed at 2.50 pm
Members thanked Mark for hosting the meeting.
