  • All venues will have a Covid-19 safety plan. Please adhere to all instructions given to you regarding this plan.
  • Please wear your name tags when attending U3A events. Name tags must be worn so that we can verify you are a paid up member.
  • Course secretaries – please forward end of year rolls to Marilyn Pryor. Contact: 0414 493 415, marilynpryor7@gmail.com
  • Course leaders –  if there have been changes to the people assisting with the running of your course,  please remember to let the course coordinator know.
  • Are you having problems getting to U3A classes because of mobility issues? You may be eligible to take advantage of the Australian Government’s My Aged Care service which can provide you with transport options. Contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or look at their website, www.myagedcare.gov.au.  You will be set up with an identity number and given a suggested list of providers in your area.
