What’s On in Chichester u3a?
Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we are using the Zoom platform to hold virtual Events. These are in addition to Groups which are running on Zoom and are therefore open to all Chichester u3a members. Click on the links to see more information. These Zoom events have been a wonderful way of easing isolation and a chance to meet new people. Friendships have been formed and we all hope to meet in person when we are permitted to do so.
COFFEE MORNINGS These are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 10am. There will be a link sent out in the preceding Bulletin which will enable you to join this meeting on Zoom. This is not only an opportunity to chat with your friends and with other members but to find out more about our current activities. We have break-out rooms at the Zoom meeting for Groups, New Members and Ideas and other small rooms where you can chat privately with friends, if you prefer. When you enter the main Zoom meeting, there will be a Zoom host who will guide you through the process and enable you be with friends and in a room of your choosing if any are of interest to you.
If you are finding Self-Isolation difficult or just want to chat to others, this is an excellent way of staying in touch.
Do let us know (by clicking the link in the Bulletin) if you would like to attend – although registration is not compulsory, it helps us to set up the Zoom meeting knowing how many members will be attending.
MONTHLY TALKS We have a new speaker booked to talk on the third Thursday of every month at 2pm on a wide range of interests. The variety of subjects selected should appeal to all our members. These have proven to be very popular and are well attended. After each meeting we will set up “break-out” rooms to enable you to continue the afternoon’s entertainment by discussing the talk and just chatting to friends and members. Click on the calendar to find out about our next talks.
QUIZ EVENINGS We are delighted that one of our members has volunteered to organise and run quizzes once a month on Zoom. We usually start at 7.30pm, usually on a Tuesday evening and the quiz lasts for about an hour. It’s all very informal and good fun. There are varied subjects and something for everyone. Settle down with the beverage of choice, your lucky mascot, pen and paper and come and meet a lovely group of quizzers. All abilities welcome. We send information in the weekly Bulletin about forthcoming quizzes; click on the link there to register.
PHOTO COMPETITION We have recently started a photo competition and would love to use some of your photos! We have a mixture of happy snappers and those with a keen interest in photography, all are welcome. These can be submitted here and you can see the photos which have already been submitted here. This is run as a monthly competition but it is very informal – we ask members to vote on their favourite “Photo of the Month”. Although there isn’t a prize it’s lovely to see your photos up on the website, so please do join in. You will find all the relevant links on the Home Page.
WALKS We invite you to send in descriptions of your favourite local walks, whether by the sea or on the Downs or even in your town or village. If you have an accompanying photo, so much the better. You can view the walks and submit your own favourite walks by clicking the links on the website Home page. Hopefully we’ll all be out and about again soon to take advantage of the lovely area in which we live. In these difficult times a walk rejuvenates you and fills you with cheer!
