Chairman’s Chat - July 2018


Hello everyone.  

I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine and getting out and about as much as you can.   Personally, I have seldom found the chilled food aisles of Sainsbury’s so appealing!


Now, please make sure you know when your groups are meeting as we go into a generally quieter time for our U3A.  


If you can tear yourself away from Wimbledon we have a Singing for Fun session on Wednesday 11th July – no football that afternoon – so come along to the cool of the Methodist Hall.


I’m pleased to say that John Johnson, a new committee member, is taking up the role of liaising with all groups on behalf of the committee as our new Group Co-ordinator.  You’ll see John around your groups in due course.


We are keen to find someone who can work alongside Sue Russell to take over as Membership Secretary at the end of the year.  This role involves maintaining records of our members, sending out new-member welcome packs and organising the annual renewal process.  If you would like to talk about this please get in touch.


GGU3A has been asked to participate in the inaugural Leicester History Festival at the Grammar School in September following some work from Toni Smith and Liz Adams relating to Great Glen soldiers in WW1.  See the item later in the newsletter and the poster at the Methodist Hall for more details.


But before then we have our Open Day on 14th August.  If you have friends who you think might enjoy our U3A then tell them to come along to the village hall to find out more about us.

That’s all for now.  Keep using the sunscreen and let’s hope for a great world cup result.  

Best wishes to you all.
