Community Involvement

We are looking for ways that our U3A can become involved more out in the community. Please discuss this within your Interest Groups to see if you might be able to offer anything for other organisations in the community. For example the Ukulele group have attended several venues like The Breath-easy group, Moorgreen Residents Association, and Erewash Canal Festival.  Let the committee know about your ideas or any contacts you might have.We recently received this request from Alexandra Nursing Home, Eastwood

“We are a small nursing home in Eastwood and was wondering if one or a group of your members would be willing to come in and speak to us to tell us all about your interesting group; they may have had interesting careers or hobbies; or members who would like to sing or recite poetry to us. We are always looking to involve more visitors and friends into our home”.
