After months of having to temporarily close due to COVID-19, members of the University of 3rd Age Dubbo Chapter will recommence classes this month, with a number of safety measures in place.
President Nola Younghusband said they started the 2020 classes in February but had to close a month later due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Mrs Younghusband said she and the other University of 3rd Age Dubbo members were pleased to be able to recommence.
"Thank you to all the staff at the Western Plains Cultural Centre for making all this possible," she said.
The first class will commence on August 3 with military history.
This will be followed by:
- Calligraphy on August 7 commencing at 10am.
- Thai Chi for arthritis on August 10 at 12:30pm.
- Digital photography on August 11 at 10am.
- Print making on August 12.

- Art history class on August 14.
- Painting for pleasure on August 19, at 2pm.
- Looking at Art on August 21 from 11am.
All of the classes will be held in the English, geography and art rooms in the community arts centre within the WPCC.
Participants will need to follow with a number of COVIDSafe rules while attending, including providing their name and contact number, using hand sanitiser, social distance, clean any equipment and provide their own mugs for morning tea.
All the 2020 class dates will be available on the U3A newsletter, which will be published in a couple of weeks.
