chairman December 2019

Dear friends

I have been struggling to write this letter, feeling as I was, overcome with gloom about the future of our wonderful organisation. We have had some brilliant talks since I last wrote to you and a hugely encouraging New Members meeting on the 14th November. The room was filled with enthusiastic Group Leaders and equally enthusiastic members, not all new, engaging in animated conversation. Just what the U3A is all about. However, as well as a welcome, I had to deliver the devastating news that unless someone came forward to continue production of our successful newsletter this would be the last. However, I am very pleased to tell you that Sheila Ayling and Judy Smith have agreed to take over from Roger Warr as joint Newsletter Editors. It is as if a huge load has lifted from my shoulders. To think that all the years of dedicated work should end when I am chairman was a very unhappy thought for me.
