Countesthorpe U3A - STOP PRESS!

CORONAVIRUS BRIEFING

All trips from History, Outings, Garden Appreciation and Theatre Groups scheduled for the foreseeable future have been cancelled.   Full refunds have been given to everybody involved.   The Kynren holiday has been cancelled for this year and full refunds given back.

ALL general and activity group meetings are cancelled until further notice - more information as it becomes available, so watch this space!

Every few weeks, an Information Update and 'Curfew Chronicle' is sent by email, or by post to those without email addresses on our Beacon system.   For the latest version, click below.   Earlier versions are available in the What's On section (please disregard the dates and just look for the Chronicle NUMBER - this is due to the way in which the website is used to publish these items!)

THE WIZARD OF OZ

As many of you will now be aware, Curve has postponed this show until 2021.   I will be refunding payment to the few people who have already paid for this, and obviously, if you have put your name down you will have to consider it cancelled, as bookings will have to start again in 2021 (perhaps!).

AGM - IMPORTANT STATEMENT

Notice of our AGM, due on 12 May 2020, was officially called in our December 2019 Newsletter.  However, due to the Covid-19 situation, this cannot take place.  Neither is it likely that the maximum three months' postponement would be practicable.  Therefore, taking guidance from both the Third Age Trust and the Charities Commission, your committee has deemed it necessary to adjourn this meeting.  This allows for the trustees only to meet (if/when government guidance allows smaller gatherings, or electronically) to sign off the accounts, which still have to be submitted in a timely fashion to the Charities Commission.  Full details of the accounts would then be circulated to all members as part of the now regular Update and Chronicle mailings.   The annual Chairman's report, normally presented at the AGM, is contained within the Update and Chronicle No 4 - available to download from the column on the right.  Due to the unprecedented circumstances, both Peter Bradbury and Sue Wyllie have very kindly agreed to continue in their respective posts until the next formal AGM in 2021.  Thus the committee will remain unchanged until that date.
