would love to take part in an online course with other

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

Volunteering - 'It All Depends On Us'
We are looking for a quiz master to run regular (weekly) quizzes online. Or have you thought about playing Consequences online? Want to form a group? Several other U3As have their own YouTube channel – want to work with others to set one up for iU3A? If you are interested in any of these please contact our Head of Volunteers, Sally Fox, here.
Still three we can't do. Can you do better, so that we can give all the answers next time?
