This is a new feature on our website to help our members and Group Contacts.
We know that there are times when our members need to get in touch with you all quickly. For example, someone may have theatre tickets which they can’t use or a group may need a couple more people for a one off event to make it viable. Or maybe, we want to publicise a new group or an outing.
This is the place where you can do it.
If you want something to be included here to reach our members, please contact Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org
It's over to you all, as members to keep us informed of what is going on.
Walkers' Insurance and Dogs on Leads
After discussions with Head Office and subsequent agreement at the January 2018 Meeting of the Executive Committee we can confirm the situation regarding insurance coverage during U3A organised walks as follows:
Members of any U3A
- All such persons are covered under the Group Public Liability insurance. This means that if any legal action is threatened against any member as a result of any incident that occurs during a U3A organised walk it should be immediately referred to the Committee. Insurers will then be advised.
- The same situation arises if a member is injured during such a walk and considers that a representative of U3A is responsible.
Non Members of U3A
- Non Members may take part in a walk but there is no insurance coverage for these persons and they undertake any such walk at their own risk.
- Dogs may take part in U3A walks and will be covered under the group insurance cover whilst on a lead.
