'Just a minute……………………'
Don’t ‘ditch’ before reading your TAM (Third Age Magazine)! This magazine comes to U3A Members through the post and is paid for from your subscription. Often there are interesting articles, relevant to us third agers, as well as offers for entrance to various exhibitions. I especially enjoyed reading the article on ‘The demographic time bomb’ in our latest edition – I expect there will be several comments on that on the Letters Page next time ! I also agree with Eric Midwinter’s article in which he says ‘age is just a number,’ when recalling the man who started sprinting at the age of 95. Or perhaps you are like Billy Butlin, who when he felt the urge to exercise, lay down until the feeling passed off!
Our February speaker’s talk about the seaside through the ages was thoroughly enjoyed by the Members and there was also praise for the presentation from the Cycling Group. Thanks to Gary Willard, Richard Swaine and Adel Resouly for an informative and humorous account of their groups’ activities over the last year. Also thanks to our IT support and the team from ‘Travellers’ Tales’ for the teas and hall set up. Next month, in complete contrast the talk will be about keeping goats!
On February 27 the Committee hosted a coffee morning for New Members who joined in the last twelve months. We sent out forty six invitations and about twenty three people enjoyed refreshments, an opportunity to look at Groups in which they might be interested and chat to Committee and fellow new Members. It was a successful and enjoyable morning.
The Committee is delighted to announce that Wine Group 3 is about to start up (see details on the website). There is still have a vacancy for a Newsletter editor – perhaps someone with IT skills or a journalistic background would be interested? Jackie Oiller, our present editor is happy to provide training if needed. Thanks to Glynis Blaber, who has led Playgroup 2 for many years and also wants to stand down. If anyone is interested in taking over either of these roles, please contact any member of the Committee.
Hazel Willard (Chairman)
