Margaret and David have been just a tad busy during the last week or two with the whole range of tasks surrounding the annual renewal of members’ subscriptions. We have completed the creation of well over 1000 new membership cards each showing a member’s name and number – not high priority on the menu for a glorious day’s relaxation! The response to our plea for early subscription renewals is bearing fruit. We have already received a good few £15 renewal cheques (£11.50 from fully paid-up members of another U3A) but a little short of the number we had hoped for!!! A very big ‘thank you’ to the members who have acted so promptly. Will your cheque be amongst the next batch to bring a smile to the Treasurer’s face? We do hope so!!!!! Please, please, please do not leave your renewal until the eleventh hour. The Post Office operates a fantastic delivery service to 3 Dunslade Close, Market Harborough, LE16 8AF. The renewal deadline date is 1st May…. not the 09th May!!!!! Thank you in anticipation of your continuing help and support.
The cash surplus arising from our catering activities at monthly general meetings is kept in a seperate pot and every now-and-then we ‘dip in’ and make a couple of charitable distributions. Your committee recently agreed to send £300 to LOROS and £300 to the Air Ambulance and cheques have been despatched accordingly. David & Margaret Kyle.
