From the Chair

The last few weeks have been a great opportunity for networking and ensuring SLU3A is firmly on the map.  Firstly, there was a long overdue new members’ coffee morning where Committee members welcomed 20+ members.  The next one is already scheduled for January.  Secondly, four of us represented SLU3A in a Leicestershire & Rutland U3A Network quiz at Newbold Verdon.  It was a fun evening although the questions were challenging at times but we did not disgrace ourselves, coming about 10 points behind the winning team.  Furthermore, we shall be hosting the next one in April and will be looking to enter a couple of teams ourselves as well as co-opting help in writing some of the questions.  Lastly, there was one of our productive, twice yearly meetings with Market Harborough U3A where we exchange ideas and ways of working together.

Did you know?  If you have any queries or changes of plan relating to premises or wish to discuss accessibility to your venue, then your first point of contact from now on should be Sarah Cawdell.  She has agreed to take on this role as well as that of Gift Aid.  Sarah’s email is:   slu3apremises@gmail.com.  Should she not be available for any reason, then you should contact, Sharon Webb, Group Enabler: slu3agroups@gmail.com.
