Christmas seems to be rushing upon me with alarming speed! I’m sure you feel the same. Time appears to telescope as we approach the celebration of Christ’s birth with so many events to enjoy and opportunities for gift giving occupying our minds.

We are looking forward to our December monthly meeting with our fast becoming traditional quiz and celebratory mince pies and fruit cake. Last year we had a hall packed with members eagerly trying to decipher the dingbats and answer the questions fired at them. We are lucky to have again this time the recorder group performing to get us into the Christmas spirit. Since the last newsletter we have enjoyed some amazing talks. On November the 8th the various history groups were fascinated by Julie Adams research into a name on a local war memorial.

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.
