Shirley Lister

It is with great sadness that we learnt yesterday of the death of Shirley Lister on
1 January 2021 at the age of 86.
She had been well known at Cleckheaton U3A for many years, a member of the choir from its introduction and tutor for the Play Reading Group.
An active committee member from 2009 to 2015 she was involved in much of the publicity for classes and events making posters and flyers.
She will be sadly missed.



No classes – January – March 2021

There will NOT BE ANY CLASSES from January to March 2021.

The following are the main points that have played a part in this sad decision:

  • Restrictions on the type of classes we can run.
  • Restrictions placed on us so we can safely use Cleckheaton Town Hall.
  • Difficulties that would be encountered with implementing new enrolment procedures.
  • Changing Government rules and guidance both locally and nationally.

The situation will be reviewed periodically in the New Year with the hope that some classes will be able to run in the summer of 2021.



Changes & Restrictions 2021

Hopefully we will be starting some of our classes in January 2021.

However some changes have had to be made and restrictions put in place so that Cleckheaton Town Hall can be used safely.

These are all detailed on the new Covid-19 page on the website – Top Left Hand Corner of the Menu.

This page will be updated as soon as new information becomes available or changes are made.


2020-2021 Enrolment

Negotiations are taking place regarding the possibility of some classes taking place this autumn.

When details are known these will be published in STOP PRESS.

Our usual Enrolment Day, which was to have been on 15 September 2020, has had to be cancelled.

Enrolment details, when available, will also be published in STOP PRESS.
