Resources for Group Leaders

Transport arrangements

When transport for a Group activity is done by private cars, all passengers should contribute towards the cost of petrol according to the current U3A recommended mileage rate which is currently 30p per mile.

To calculate the cost per person:

Number of miles travelled (don’t forget to allow for the return journey!)
Multiply by 30p
Divide by number of people in car (i.e. passengers AND driver)

Laptop and Projector

If your group would like to make use of the U3A’s laptop & projector, please contact Stephen Ashley.

The laptop runs on Windows 10 and has the complete suite of Microsoft Office 2010 installed. The laptop has a CD/DVD player, so could be used for showing films, and a separate speaker is also available.

Logos, Fonts and Design Resources

If you are producing your own posters, leaflets, presentations, handouts or other material you may want to make use of the correct u3a logo and typeface and use ‘official’ colours. The following are available to download:

  • The u3a Brand Guidelines, which includes lots of examples of how to create material.
  • The u3a font. This is a .zip file that contains several variants of the u3a font that you can install on any computer.
  • A selection of u3a logos. The .zip file contains several different layouts, sizes and colours.
