We send two regular email updates to Barnet u3a members:

Weekly Update         

This email update gives you a brief heads-up on forthcoming Barnet u3a events, new activity groups or groups looking for more members, and outings, trips or cruises you may like to join, plus other news coming from within Barnet u3a. Where necessary, it links to this website where you can find more information.  It is emailed each Sunday morning to members who have subscribed to it. 

Occasionally, a Special Notice with urgent/ important news may be emailed out on other days.

To submit an item, please:

  • Draft a short item (max 100 words) and give it a factual title.
  • Include any attachment (flyer etc) you would like included as a pdf.
  • Put For Weekly Update: in the subject line.
  • Email it to updates@barnetu3a.org.uk

Copy deadline                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

The copy deadline each week is Thursday 5pm.  The editor reserves the right to edit your copy and title in the interests of clarity, brevity and the Weekly Update house style. Where appropriate, she will email the edited version back to you as soon as possible, for you to approve before it is published.

News about groups

If you want an item about a group to go in the Groups News section, please send your copy by 12.30pm Thursday to our Groups Co-ordinator Johanne Carstairs.
