I am pleased to report that the new Committee is now established, with incoming Trustees getting to grips with their roles and responsibilities. We have kept Group Leaders informed as appropriate of changes to procedures. The Committee has shared an annual plan and we have begun to work through it: some things being straightforward, others one off, such as next year’s 20th birthday celebration, but others are proving to be a challenge, including moving to on line banking, so please bear with us as we endeavour to set this up.. Within the Leicestershire and Rutland Network of U3As we are involved in two autumn events – a 4th quiz in Hinckley (two SLU3A teams entered) and a Bridge day in Market Harborough being led by SLU3A and Leicester U3A (see our website for details: https://slu3a.org.uk/a-day-for-bridge/ or contact Don Collins).
