Welcome to our website. If you are a member browsing “ Hello Again”. If you are a non member you are most welcome.
Firstly may I address visitors. I hope you will see from our website that we live up to our motto of “Learn Laugh Live”, a later life group for those no longer in full time employment. Check out our Groups page. There is something for most people and you know what there is nothing stopping you personally starting a new group if you were thinking of becoming a member.
One thing is sure we always need new and frankly younger blood. So do think about getting involved, maybe even joining the committee and other offices using your enthusiasm and skills to make our u3a work for others.
Frankly I have a BIG message at this time for members and indeed visitors thinking of joining us. In March 2022 ( yes 2022) we will need a new Treasurer. You will recognise this is a vital role and to be honest one we cannot run without. HELP !!!!! In a perfect world this Treasurer would join the committee at our AGM in March 2021 to get acclimatised. Our committee continue to meet virtually via Zoom. If it is not your skill set please think who you know who might fit the bill. I have been privileged to run with a great committee who all pull together and enjoy each others company. A new Treasurer can be sure of a supportive and warm welcome.
I write as we are about to enter Tier 3 coronavirus lockdown. Throughout this crisis the committee of our u3a has prioritised the well being of our u3a community. Groups have continued to run where they can and we have sponsored a TV programme, NG30, which after a successful pilot will run as a mini series on Notts TV featuring interesting insights of local people and their fascinating lives. We have tried to support anyone who has struggled , in any way, through these grim times.
So if you want to follow up any aspect of this message you can get me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best. Stay Safe.
Malcolm McDowell, Chair.”
