Message from the Chair

It hardly seems possible but this month marks the halfway point in my Chairmanship. I have been very lucky to have held the role supported by such a wonderful membership who have enabled us to make progress in many areas.

Firstly, attendance at the monthly meetings continues to be good so much so that we had a record attendance of 270 in February. The meetings have also seen us entertained by some excellent visiting guests and none more so than this month when Vince Eager pays us a welcome return.

In terms of new members applying, we continue to see a steady stream coming along each month for their Introduction to the group. Several new groups have started over the year and existing groups are progressing well. We now have close to sixty groups and five hundred members in total. We have set up closer links with other local U3A’s, especially those in the North Nottinghamshire Area.

The Social Committee have organised many excellent events over the year, while the Executive Committee work very hard on behalf of all members, be that with the Finances, Membership or any other areas of their work.

I hope the next year continues to see the Hucknall U3A progress so that I can hand over an organisation to be proud of in twelve months’ time.
