Coffee mornings 2018:

1st September:  Social meeting and Quiz from the Chair

3 November:  Craft groups



The new FM Loop system was used at our lunch on the 20th of June at the Royal Hotel.  It was tried by a number of our members and they all reported hearing our speaker with less effort and greater clarity.  If you have a hearing aid with a T (telecoil) or loop setting you will find the system simple to use, just put on one of our discreet FM receivers and switch your hearing device to the T setting!


The FM loop system will be used at all forthcoming monthly lunches so if you would like to try the system please speak to me, or one of the other committee members present, before the speaker starts.  The FM loop system is also available for use at other U3A venues so please speak to your group leader if you feel this would be of help to yourself or any one else who wants to attend any of our groups. 

The whole reason for investing in the FM loop system is to help make the Torridge U3A more inclusive and rewarding for all.  I know from my professional experience that hearing problems, especially in situations with more background noise, can make people feel excluded and less likely to take part in social activities. 

Please spread the word, to both existing U3A members and anyone you know that may have been put off from joining the Torridge U3A, that we now have a system which can help them make their membership a more interesting and enjoyable experience.
