NEW COVID 19 LEGISLATION & U3A LEEDS

New laws come into force from Monday 14 September restricting more than six people meeting together whether indoors or outdoors. Social distancing is still a priority and face coverings should be worn in indoor places where social distancing may be difficult and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet. There are exemptions for any member who may have a valid medical reason for not wearing a face covering.

More detailed guidance can be found on the Government’s website here.

There are also new rules for people attending exercise groups and these too can be found on the Government’s website here. Information from the Ramblers Association indicates that these rules allow walking groups to arrange walks.

Important notice about subsctiptions

The subscription rate for U3A Leeds is to be held at £10.00 for yet another year and you will not need to pay it until 1 April 2021. Subsequently, for this year only, members will get 15 months’ membership for the price of 12 which, considering the Covid 19 pandemic has put a stop to so many of our activities, seems only fair.

At our recent AGM it was agreed that, to simplify our financial administration, U3A Leeds’ subscription year would switch from 1 January - 31 December, to 1 April - 31 March, consistent with that of U3A National Office. For those who pay by standing order, kindly inform your Bank to change your mandate to make payment on 1 April 2021.

New renewal forms will be available to members early in the new year. You will receive a reminder closer to the time.
