Chairman’s Chat - March 2019


Hello everyone


As we approach our year end on 31st March, it’s good to report that we shall have reached a record membership this year – 396 at the last count.  

Of course, at each year end some members leave us but I’m pleased to see that well over half of us have renewed our membership already.  

There’s another walk-in session at the Methodist Hall on Thursday 21st March if you wish to pay in person.  Repeating last month’s message, can I stress the importance of ticking the box on your renewal form if you wish to receive the Third Age Matters magazine.


We have a wide range of activities but there’s always room for something new, so please bring forward any suggestions you have.  I was looking through the national U3A list of subject advisors to see what goes on elsewhere and saw such topics as Architecture, Climate Change, Comedy, Film, Latin, Jazz Appreciation, Maths, Puppetry, Play Reading and Philosophy.  It only requires half a dozen members with a common interest to get something going.


As we approach our AGM in May, I’m happy to say that we shall be able to put forward a proposed new committee for the next year for approval by members.


 We should still like to hear from any secret techie out there who might take over the management of our web site.  Please contact me if that is you!


That’s all for now.  By this time next month our UK world might have changed dramatically but whatever happens make the most of your U3A membership in 2019.


Best wishes
