Message from the Chair

Our next monthly meeting is on Wednesday, 10th July, and I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.
Please ensure that you enter the building from the car park rear entrance.

The good weather is among us, nice to see the sunshine after the cold winter and wet spring. A time for getting out and, if you are able, getting away on your holidays, short breaks or days out. Really hoping that the current airport delays and flight cancellations – more to come – do not affect any of us.

Don’t forget there are plenty of wonderful places in the UK to visit, I personally love the Scottish Highland, Snowdonia in Wales and love a long weekend close to home in the Peak District, we really are blessed with a wonderful choice.

Our guest speaker this month is a gentleman known as Andy McKinnon, who will be giving us a talk on the First World War, a topic that is no longer within living memory unless you are over 104 years old.

Following on from our coffee / tea break we will be hearing from Home-Start a charity that supports families with young children, run by local trained volunteers.

Looking forward to the both of the talks, and a big thankyou as always to Dianne our Speakers Secretary for arranging everything.

Our Treasurer will be back among us in the near future and the bank mandate resolved, so financial activity will soon be back to normal, thanks for your patience during this handover period from our ex-Treasurer Christine to our new Treasurer, Gary.

On our website, under the heading ‘Announcements’ there is a list of all of the groups that have vacancies and are looking for new members. However, should you want to join a group that is full, please speak to the group’s co-ordinator and/or Sue Tedstone who will be only too glad to give help and encouragement in helping you to start a new group. Hopefully when our current group leaders tell us what it is they do, it will encourage more of us to take a more active part.

Please approach any of the committee or indeed anyone, who will gladly lead you in the right direction.

As always, thanks to Steve for preparing and editing our newsletter, we are very lucky, not many u3as have monthly newsletters.

Melvyn Francis, Chair
