Chairman’s Chat - December 2017

Hello everyone.

As I sit here writing this piece, I’m looking forward to our December meeting organised by our Music & Good Company Group.  It will start with another welcome visit from the children of St Cuthbert’s Primary School and we shall have contributions from individual members and some sing-along tunes from our Ukulele Group.  And of course, there is programme of recordings selected by members of the M&GC Group.

Then, as we get closer to Christmas Day, why not take a break from your Christmas preparations and come along to the Singing-for-Fun session on Wednesday 20th December and join in singing some carols and popular seasonal songs. (Methodist Hall; 2.00 p.m.)

A reminder that we are looking for additional committee members to help in the running of our U3A.  You can contact any committee member about this.

I also need to let you know that your committee has been looking carefully at our ongoing financial position and we have concluded that a change to the £1 meeting charge is now unavoidable.  I appreciate that it’s not a very Christmassy topic and the detail will be in the next newsletter.

So I’d like to say, in this final chat for the year, on behalf of the committee, a big “Thank You” to all our Group Leaders and other helpers for the work they have done during 2017.   And to all our members, I wish you all of the joys and happy memories that the festive season brings.  A merry Christmas to you all.

PS AS you will know by now, we have had to cancel the Christmas meeting  because of the conditions under foot.   I don’t know at present if we can re-schedule the event.  In any case hold on to your tickets and watch for a further announcement.
