News and Notices

If it’s Hot it’s Here . . .

This section will include regular updates as soon as it is possible.

Watch this space for updates from your Group Leader as they are available.

There are so many unknowns with Covid-19 at present that we have slowed down the development of this site for the moment.

The broad plan is that Alton U3A-wide material in this section will be updated regularly. Updates, which are sent by Group Leaders, will be posted here as soon as possible, with a link to the group page. The date of posting will be given as well.

If you want to find earlier material we have an “Old News” sub-page here for things that are older but still relevant.

The aim is to keep the new News “stuff” fresh.

(This is an introductory note which is pinned here)

As part of the ongoing development of the site I am working on embedding documents. If this is working you should find a “Poets Wordsearch” linked to the Poetry Appreciation Group’s page here. Once you’ve found it, you should (in theory) be able to print off a copy.
