Membership Secretary

Happy New Year to all our Members. I hope that you had a Wonderful Christmas

We still have few of The U3A Diary for 2020 available and if you still need  a diary, please see me at the January meeting.

Many thanks to all the Members and the Group Leaders who have forwarded completed Gift Aid declarations. We are still continuing this campaign and if you are a UK Taxpayer and have not completed a Gift Aid Form, please see me at the meeting, speak to your Group Leader who all have the forms or contact me via email or telephone, and I will forward a form to you

Gift Aid can provide an important contribution to our funds, enabling us to provide more support for both our Groups and Members and possibly in the future, help towards reducing the Membership subscriptions.

If you are a UK Tax payer, all you have to do is to write your name on and then sign and date a Declaration form. There is no other action required from you and it does not cost you any money or affect your tax position.

It is with great sadness that I must advise that Gordon Cole has had to resign due to illness having been a Member for over 15 years and Keith Gilbert, a  Founder Member who died on the 14 December. A separate article about Keith can be found in the Newsletter.
