Please keep yourself safe but be kind to others. 

Update 15th March 2020
In view of the seriousness of the Corona Covid-19 epidemic we have taken the decision to Cancel the Monthly meeting due to take place on Wednesday 18th March.

The Committee of Bingham U3A are reviewing the situation constantly and we will watch the situation with respect to cancelling future meetings.
Interest Groups:  If you host meetings at your home you may wish to cancel or postpone meetings for the foreseeable future, your decision will be respected.
It is likely that the outdoor activity groups (eg Ambling & Walking) will continue to run - with 'social distancing' being respected

The Pop Quiz arranged for March 20th has been cancelled and no future dates have been planned.

Please do not attend meetings if you have been in contact with anyone from infected areas or if you have any symptoms of cold or flu - please respect others

Advice from Sam Mauger, Chief Executive , Third Age Trust as at 10th March 2020

**If a member has returned from one of the areas identified by the government and has any of the symptoms identified on the government website they should not hold interest groups in their own homes, or attend interest groups or attend monthly meetings until they have followed the NHS advice provided after calling 111

If a U3A finds that a member has contracted coronavirus, please let the Trust know immediately

**The members of interest groups that any member with coronavirus has attended should all call 111 to ask for advice

**The monthly meeting should be cancelled for that month (and possibly longer) until the spread of the virus has been assessed.

 In general  a U3A may consider other precautions such as using hand sanitiser gel in interest groups and monthly meetings and reducing physical contact such as shaking hands until further information becomes available
