As mentioned in the closing editorial of July’s Newsletter, Malcolm Hellings, a member of several of Windsor U3A’s varied music groups, has been organising the distribution (by e-mail) of pdf play lists submitted by himself and other group members over recent months. This project has become the Music for a Desert Island group, see below for a list of other music listening groups.
While Windsor U3A can’t give you the listening figures that the 78-year-old radio favourite does, it can offer you the chance to share the soundtrack of your life with other members, or just sit back and listen to someone else do it, once or twice a month.
A small army of volunteers from Windsor U3A is at the heart of our drive to help relieve the loneliness and boredom that can come from social isolation as the UK’s Covid-19 lockdown continues.

Maggie, convenor of our Creative Writing group sends her thoughts after the initial lockdown period. She says:
Jane writes “Many people find it useful to create an activity timetable so morning, afternoon and evening

Annie writes: “I have been keeping busy with Singing. I sing with the Rock choir live everyday online at 3:00pm and have also had tutorials from our choir leader, Glen, which are fun.”
