COVID restrictions might have prevented Javea U3A meetings, but that hasn’t stopped them getting together in other ways.

Fifty members turned out for the January meeting via an online Zoom link to enjoy “A Trip Around the Coast of Spain and Portugal: Denia to Javea the Long Way,” an excellent presentation by fellow member Peter Atkinson.

Thanks went to U3A Javea Secretary Margaret March for setting up the Zoom meeting, and online presentations have proved so popular that more are planned.

The U3A’s Executive Committee have also been holding meetings online during the pandemic.

While most of the U3A groups have had to suspend activities because of the coronavirus restrictions, some continue to operate online and via home participation, including Photography, run by Steven Staus and Rummikubs, led by Krystyna Stfanczyk.
