I simply have to begin by telling you about the August meeting with quiz, Beetle Drive and cream tea.

It was a sunny day and the hall looked quite festive with 24 tables for four set out around the room.Nearly a hundred members took part. The quiz generated a lot of laughter and groans, then the scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream appeared and were consumed with startling speed, all served to the tables by the amazingly efficient Quester 6 group. The Beetle Drive turned out to be a bit chaotic but really good fun. As I was trying to M.C. proceedings ( proverbially like herding cats) I was unable to take part but from my viewpoint it was a joy to see the faces of members engaging with the game and each other with such obvious enjoyment.

Sylvia Leyton, our Subscriptions Secretary, had that morning baked sufficient scones for 100 people - a huge thank you to her.

There will be a Group Leaders meeting on the afternoon of Thursday 22 November at 2:30 in Littleton Millennium Hall. Group Leaders will have an opportunity to outline the activities of their groups and how they operate to members who are interested in joining. While it is appreciated that not all Group Leaders will be able to attend as a few groups will, inevitably, be meeting on that afternoon, we hope that especially Group Leaders with vacancies in their groups will be able to attend. Equally, it is hoped that members who have joined in the last twelve months or so will find this a useful opportunity to find out more about the delights of U3A and particularly what happens in different groups that they would like to join. All members of Winchester U3A are of course welcome to attend.
