Group News

As we are gently coming out of lockdown there is a desire for some groups to tentatively start meeting.  From 12th April groups of up to 6 are allowed to meet in private gardens socially distanced, and groups of 6 can already meet to go for walks.

From 17th May restrictions for meeting outdoors in groups of up to 30 will be lifted and 6 people or 2 households can meet indoors.  This would permit small groups to be run from member’s homes.  From 21st June all legal limits on social contact to be removed but must comply with Hands, Face, Space.  This guidance is provisional and depends on government review at each stage.

Following government guide lines groups will only resume when the group leader feels that it is safe to do so and they have sufficient members who are happy to return.

Advice for resuming group activities:-

  1.  Inform your committee of your plans to resume
  2. Use the relevant risk assessment
  3. Inform your members of what to expect and how to prepare for returning
  4. Ask members to complete a personal risk assessment before returning
  5. Keep a register of participants
  6. Ensure that you are following current government guidance on social distancing and maintaining Covid – secure requirements at all times.

The personal risk assessment is for members to consider their own and others’ health circumstances before taking part and to consider the risk to themselves and anyone in their household.

Do not take part in any activity if you or someone from your household have Covid 19 symptoms – these include a high temperature, a new continuous cough and the loss, or a change to your sense of smell or taste.

Extra information: Car sharing is only allowed in an emergency until the end of May.

Welcome to Sherwood U3A, Mansfield Woodhouse

We are an organisation formed by local people whose aim is to work together to enjoy a variety of learning opportunities and social activities.

Our Members are retired or semi retired and generally over 50 (though there are no age constraints). Their objective is to share fun, friendship and informal learning in a vibrant, varied and enjoyable way.

This website is to provide potential members with some idea about what we offer, but more importantly the site is here to provide existing members with up-to-date information on what is available, what is happening in the future and what people have been doing at recent events.
