Monday 08 June, Online Quiz Event: after the
success of our recent Zoom online quiz we thought we'd
do another. But this time due to an offer from a
member (thanks Jayne) to be our Quiz Master we will
hold it ourselves. Reserve the date in your diary.
More details to follow.

(starting at 2.00pm), see details on our What's
On webpage. Log on details will be the same Zoom
links as above (for the meeting of 28 May).
Singing for Beginners: one of our members
would love to take part in an online course with other
iU3A members on Singing for Complete Beginners. She
thinks, and we agree, that this could be popular but
we need someone experienced to lead it. Might that be
you? If so please contact Valerie here.
Online courses: is there a subject you’ve
always wanted to explore? Would you like to join other
iU3A members in an online learning group? Now is the
perfect time to get going, so please fill in this questionnaire to let us
know the kind of courses you’d like. Or just send an
email to Valerie at: New Groups
Craft Group: we haven’t been able to meet for
two months now, but we keep in touch and share
pictures of our work. One topic which some members are
working on is masks. Not wanting to deprive the NHS
and other key workers, there are lots of people who
make their own masks. The huge variety of You Tube
videos to choose from give you many patterns and
detailed instructions. There is plenty of discussion
about the best type of fabrics: you can recycle
garments you already own, but remember if you can blow
out a candle through your mask, it’s not going to
work. Two sites worth a look are here (materials needed) and here (no sewing required). Here
are some examples made by our members:

You can see these National Portrait Gallery
Exhibitions: Hold Still: spearheaded by The
Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of the National Portrait
Gallery, Hold Still, a portrait of our nation in 2020,
is an ambitious community project to create a unique
photographic portrait which captures the spirit, mood,
hopes, fears and feelings of the nation as we continue
to deal with the Coronavirus outbreak. And BP Portrait Awards 2020. View the

More exercises from Healthy Generations (all

Gardeners: need some plants for your stay at
home period? Plantsavers have just recently
been set up to help British plant growers hit by
COVID-19. PlantSavers take healthy plants at risk of
going to waste, direct from nurseries across the UK,
and bring them to people who want them at home across
London and the South East. They’ve saved 250,000
plants to date and are targeting a million by the end
of 2020. They make it easy by providing pre-selected
packs of plants. For each pack they sell £1 goes to
'Meals for the NHS'. Several iU3A members have used
them and recommend we support them.
Want more out of your U3A? Why not help and support it? If you sometimes wonder how our members help then see some of our volunteer profiles Volunteers Profiles. If you are interested in any of these please contact our Head of Volunteers, Sally Fox, here.
