Chairman’s Chat - May 2018

Hello everyone

Sorry about the misprint in my last chat.  When I said ‘And as we head for the warmer weather, is there anyone who could lead some gentle rambles in our local countryside?’  I inadvertently typed ‘warmer’ instead of ‘wetter’.

But I’m pleased to say that we have some offers to lead such a group so if you are interested in joining in then see the item in this newsletter.

This month’s meeting is our AGM and there are some important changes to the committee and to our constitution that need your approval.  We shall also be entertained by our Uke3A group before the AGM and with some of Toni’s films afterwards so please come along.

I’d just like to drop in a reminder of the Learn Something New session on keeping fraudsters and scammers at bay which is on 23 rd May – see the item later in the newsletter.  

At the moment we have an excellent Book Group run by Liz Adams but there is a natural limit to the number of members for the Group.  So it has been suggested that a second book group might be launched to enable more members to participate.  If you are interested then Patricia Mansfield has posted details in this newsletter – see Committee News.

Finally, I am sad to say that Toni Smith is standing down from the committee after many years of service – although the last time she tried to get away we asked her back again - and I think I say on behalf of all members a big thank you for her work on the committee.  I know she will continue to help in many ways, so we haven’t see the last of her, I’m sure.

My best wishes to you all.  Make the most of your U3A membership.  There’s lots to do so try out a new group this month.
