Group Enabler

A very happy New Year to all our members! After the festive break I hope everyone is rested and ready for all that 2020 brings.

New SLU3A groups are planned to broaden the choice on offer and to eliminate waiting lists. Every month 4 new group ideas will be promoted for a period of up to 3 months, depending on interest. I will let all members know about them by email and they will also be listed in my Newsletter report and on the website. In addition, I will have a list at each monthly meeting where members can sign up for them as well as a ‘Suggestions for New Groups’ sheet. January New Groups are: Chess, Ukuleles 2, Cycling 2 and Walking Cricket. 

By now, all Group Leaders will have been contacted about producing a short video for our 20th Anniversary Celebrations on 11th May. I hope as many groups as possible will participate to showcase all the varied activities our U3A takes part in.

Finally, I would like to extend my thanks and best wishes to Peter Ellement and Chris Graves, both of whom are standing down as Group Leaders of the Architecture and Monday Bridge groups respectively. Both have carried out their roles for 15 years – a wonderful achievement which is much appreciated by everyone in SLU3A!
