Chairman’s Chat -
A happy new year to all of you. I hope you had an enjoyable time over the Christmas period. I have to spend some time this month expressing my extreme disappointment about having to cancel the Christmas meeting because of the snow and icy conditions. It is a highlight for so many of us, and it is very unfortunate that the preparation by the organisers and participants is not properly recognised. So I must thank our Music & Good Company Group and others who would have performed on the day for their efforts and I hope we can find other opportunities for them during the coming months.
So amongst your new year’s resolutions have you thought about whether you could join the committee and assist in the running of our U3A? The situation is now getting quite urgent and we are looking for at least two members to help with the organisation and administration that is necessary. You can contact myself or any committee member and arrange to come along to a committee meeting and see what goes on.
If you managed to see a copy of last month’s newsletter then you may recall my mention of a change to our £1 group meeting charge. There is a separate item elsewhere in this issue but in a nutshell the charge will increase to £1:50 from 1st April 2018. This is the first increase since the formation of our U3A in 2001.
All our groups will be starting up again after the Christmas breaks and almost all of them would welcome new members; why not try a new group for the new year?
Finally, I hope you continue to enjoy everything you do at our U3A. We are always on the lookout for new ideas and all suggestions are welcomed.
