1) A Message from our Chairman

In the light of the ongoing restrictions and social distancing requirements, unfortunately we are unable to run face to face class meetings for the foreseeable future. Given the rule of six which is in force now until March 2021, this means many classes may not be able to restart until next October, by which time, hopefully we may have a vaccine.
We are trying to keep in contact with members and have signed up to be able to run online sessions using Zoom. Some classes are also in contact by email or social media.

Membership would normally expire on 31st August each year; however, we have extended the membership period for all our existing members without the need to pay an additional membership fee until normal classes can resume.

We will be holding our Annual General Meeting by Zoom on Monday, 14th December 2020 at 2.00 p.m. Any member who would like to attend this meeting, could you please contact Stephanie Roe on 07810 447183 to ensure that you receive the Zoom invitation. You can also do this by email to thirdage@dewsbury-district3age.co.uk.

We do welcome new members so if you require any information, please email or phone me on 07842 284778.

If you need more information please email or phone, my details can be found on the Contact Page.
