Welcome to the new website

Welcome to our new website. We hope that you find it more interesting and easier to read. Although the current content is similar to the old website the potential for the use of photographs and articles is far greater. The key to that is for you to send in photos and articles telling the story of what you have been doing in your group. To send in email attachments use this email address u3aguernsey.news@gmail.com

1,000 Members Commemorative Bench Seat

The Woodworking Group have completed work on our commemorative bench to celebrate our organisation reaching 1000 members.

EVENTBRITE

Now that we have 1,000 members, booking events has become a huge task to undertake manually using sheets of paper & pen, and handling cash & cheques and credit card payments, etc, especially as most people now want to pay by credit/debit card. Having researched various options for an on-line booking system, we have chosen to use Eventbrite, which is used extensively by many organisations for events e.g. St James Concert Hall, Guernsey Chamber of Commerce, La Société Guernesiaise.

Whilst the booking process through Eventbrite is relatively simple, we have prepared a simple step by step guide to assist members with the process, which you can download from here - Eventbrite Booking Guide
