I cannot believe that it is already December, 2018 seems to have flown by, it must be a sign of age.
Unfortunately Phyllis Lord and Christopher Mosley, two of our very long standing Group Leaders, have recently had to resign from the SLU3A. Phyllis had become increasing ill over the last few months and has moved to be near her daughters in Berkshire, whilst Christopher has left for the joys of the South Coast in Bournemouth.
They will both be greatly missed and I would like to wish them all best for the future from all of us in SLU3A.
On a lighter note, I am delighted to welcome 9 New Members to the SLU3A, who joined us in November, Eileen Lander, Liz Thake, Liz and Steve Rothero, Graham Chalk, Jane and Keith Gibbons, Rosalie Gurr and Lisa Coppel-Rose. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome them to the SLU3A and trust that they will be become fully involved with us and enjoy the wide range of events and activities available.
Finally, just a reminder that you are able to pay your annual subscription from January onwards. As agreed at the last AGM, it will now be £20.00 for Individual Members and £16.50 for Associate Members, who also belong to another U3A and a pay a full membership fee to them.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
