2021 Events

As Covid-19 restrictions continue, our Monthly Socials with Speaker have recommenced via Zoom from November 2020. Trips and outings planned for 2020 were postponed until 2021 and are being kept under review with regard to Covid-19 guidelines.  Our annual lunch for 2021 will be arranged as soon as guidelines permit. Lots to look forward to!

Monthly Social Mornings with Guest Speakers 2021

Venue and Time: General social mornings are normally held at Eccles Town Hall, 116 Church Street, Eccles, M30 0LH, 10am on the third Friday of each month.  However many of these have had to be cancelled during 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. Currently and until further notice, these meetings are  being held via Zoom and participants will need to contact Mary McBride on salfordu3a@gmail.com in order to register and support this.

The social morning is held in order to have a discussion together with a cup of tea or coffee and to listen to a variety of Guest Speakers, to air your views and to pass relevant information to members. Prospective members will be most welcome.
