Welcome to Carrick U3A




U3A is an organisation of men and women
who regularly gather together
to share their experiences, knowledge, philosophies,
values and ideas.
They learn from each other

It is a forum for the growth of the human spirit,
the development of friendships and
the exploration of ideas
to enrich the quality of life in the Third Age

The U3A Carrick group takes its name from the large inland waterway and natural harbour of Carrick Roads, lying between Falmouth and St Mawes. Both headlands were protected in earlier times by Henry VIII, with his heavily fortified castles at Pendennis in Falmouth and St Mawes Castle, on the Roseland penninsula.

Message from the Chairman, John Bishop, even though all groups are cancelled because of the National Emergency, do keep in contact with people by phone, particularly those who who live alone.

Thank you very much to all our members for your support over the present crisis and especially to our tireless group leaders for responding so promptly to government guidelines and suspending your group until further notice in order to keep our members safe. 

Though all groups have halted in their usual form many groups are keeping in contact one way or another:
First Saturday has become Virtual Saturday
Photography have been looking to set up their own Facebook page 
Carrick Singers have been investigating the use of Zoom to keep on singing 
Playreading and the Italian group also hope to use Zoom
Ramblers are keeping in touch using a WhatsApp group
Reading group 2 is going to circulate their comments on the latest book to each other via e-mail
and I expect there are many more such initiatives.

Our Editor Mark is - amazingly - going to keep the Newsletter going and will update us on all this. Do tell him him if your group has come up with some useful  ways of keeping in touch. 

The National Office of the U3A encourage all members to sign up to the National Newsletter. They have also set up a closed Facebook account where members can share ideas and thoughts at https://www.facebook.com/groups/2833125070105668 

Lets hope all our members come through this safe and well and lets look after each other.
