Free Home Safety Visits
Fire + Rescue NSW
is running a program offering free Home Safety Visits to help promote fire safety and prevention around the home.  The visit would include a local fire station crew attending the homes within your community and offering tailored fire safety information to the resident.  Free smoke alarms would also be installed, or smoke alarm batteries replaced if required. Please find below a link from the Fire + Rescue NSW website outlining the program details:  https://www.fire.nsw.gov.au/page.php?id=9316

Recent Committee meeting was held on March 26. Progress is being made in developing our Semester 2 handbook. Still hoping one of our members may step into the position of President or Vice-President.  We are also considering developing a Facebook page for U3A GW. Love to have a member volunteer to be the manager. And we are negotiating with 90.5 FM our local radion station – keep an eye out on your email.


Update Wangaratta Holiday 2021  

Owing to the uncertainty of whether there may be border closures or lockdowns placed on our State along with the uncertainty as to whether people who have booked will be able to be vaccinated before departing Sydney in April this year, it has been decided that the Wangaratta Holiday will be postponed until 2022.  Further information regarding dates, cost and booking information will be provided in this year’s second-semester Course Book.
